Featured on the cover of and in an interview in the March issue of International Gymnast magazine, 2015 World Championships team gold medalist Maggie Nichols of the U.S. said she is enjoying her freshman year competing for the University of Oklahoma but has not ruled out a return to international competition.
"I'm thinking about college right now, and I’m just trying to finish the season,” Nichols said. “But it’s never a 'no.'"
Nichols also said she had to make several adjustments after she moved to Norman, Okla.
"The biggest one, probably, is not having my parents with me, like cooking me meals and doing my laundry," said Nichols, who is studying pre-nursing and "a little bit of journalism."
"And also managing school and the workouts at OU. It's a little bit different. It's been a good transition and I've really been enjoying it."
