I really dislike her personality. I will not miss her. At all. 

 

Seriously? In a sport full of athletes I can't personally stand, she was one of the few I really really liked.

Skeleton = random retirements + random comebacks.

The  thing is she used to be a lot vocal about getting a second gold medal at the Olympics. I can't forget her face and attitude when she turned to the camera after the last point was scored in the final match and kept saying "cala a boca" (shut up) instead of being humble and celebrating like a real champ.

I don't think a moment should define her carreer, but honestly, if there was a moment where she shouldn't be humble, it was that. Remember, the situation needs to be put in context. After barely qualifying in the first stage, the team got a LOT of crap from Volleyball fans, which (frankly) the team didn't deserve. So after coming back from nothing to win a gold medal, I think it was more than fair to say a few harsh words for the people who didn't believe in them.
