They chose the wrong quote for Molly Seidel. It's a good one, just not the one most will remember.

Speaking of the closing ceremonies, I noticed that many athletes go straight home after their own competitive events have ended, even if the Olympics itself have not.

I understand that this year, because of safety protocols, that athletes are given 48 hours to leave after their final event. But I'm also referring to previous Olympics, that some of the athletes go straight home and not attend the closing ceremony. I remember the 2016 Olympics that some medal winners from the USA team went right home, and several appearing in TV talk-shows, etc.

I thought it was a tradition that all the country's competing athletes have to stick around for the closing ceremonies. (I'm referring to pre-COVID years)
