In 2021, Katie Moon became an Olympic champion. In 2022, she crumbled.

“I really struggled,” Moon told NBC Olympics. “I had what they have deemed ‘post-Olympic blues’ or ‘post-Olympic depression.’ I just really crashed in every sense of the word. I was so stressed all year long, and I had a terrible season.”

Competing as the reigning Olympic pole vault gold medalist, Moon lost nearly every single meet in 2022, including eight in a row at one point.
