McPherson-Reflections
Olympian from South Dakota reflects on wins
The Associated Press - July 15, 2017

STURGIS, S.D. - A two-time Olympian from western South Dakota says a more relaxed attitude helped her win silver at the 2017 World Taekwondo Championships in Korea.

The Black Hills Pioneer reports that Paige McPherson won the medal in the women's 67-kilogram division. The medal was her second career world championship medal to go along with the bronze she captured in 2015.

McPherson says she tries not to put added pressure on herself to do well at the world championships. She also says she has a lot of respect for Turkey's Nur Tatar who won against her 6-4 in the finals.

The Sturgis-native says she's still up in the air as to whether she'll compete at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Future plans include competing in grand prix series starting August.
