"This is what we dream of...to have that last wave come your way in such a clutch moment is incredible and I'm overwhelmed! This is a huge stepping stone and I feel like everything's clicking for me at the moment. I peaked in the final and everything was amazing! This year's been a whirlwind I don't know what's happened to me, I've never won an event before and this is my second for this season!"
