The major turning points in her story include the discovery of her love of the sport, her ‘rebellion’ against her parents’ wishes to focus more on her formal education, and fighting body image and stereotypes as she exercised her freedom to make career choices as a woman. As she has also gotten more successful, she has faced some backlash with the high expectations and pressures that come with fame.
