Now, Hendrickson is just trying to do everything she can to be ready in time.
"In the beginning, it was very hard to stay positive," she acknowledged. "Half of you, you just want to give up. But that is completely against my whole nature. Being in a sport like women’s ski jumping where we haven’t been included for so long, I mean, none of us gave up. We’re still here, we’re still fighting, and now hopefully we’ll get a chance to achieve our dreams.
"Things don’t go completely as planned always," she said, managing a smile. "So you just have to fight back, stay strong and still strive for that goal that you have."
