The Flat Hat caught up with sophomore All-American Kristin Milardo to discuss her favorite gymnastics venue, what she misses about her native Colorado, and her opinion on Lil’ Wayne’s recent conviction.
What do you miss from Colorado?:
I miss the mountains, the snow, the Rockies. By Rockies, I mean the baseball team. I love following them. Of course, there are family and friends that I miss too.
Is there room to improve after last year’s breakout season?:
Of course. This summer I learned a new dismount that is harder to complete.
What is your favorite venue:
I have a lot of good memories at N.C. State after competing there twice last year [at the Sweetheart Invitational with the team and at the NCAA Regional meet individually]. There’s always a good crowd there.
Favorite non-alcoholic beverage:
One of your favorite artists is Lil’ Wayne. Any thoughts on his recent legal controversy?:
It’s very sad. But he is definitely going to make hits while he’s in jail. He’s going to be okay [laughs].
