‘It’s just really special’: Jade Carey wins gold at Tokyo Olympics with her dad by her side

TOKYO — Jade Carey finished her golden floor routine with a smile on her face and immediately high-fived and embraced her coach, better known as « dad. »

Carey, one of the few Olympians accompanied by a family member at the Games, is coached by her father, Brian Carey, so he’s an exception to the rule barring international visitors from traveling to Tokyo.

On Monday night, Jade performed a floor routine she described as her best ever and posted a score of 14.366, the highest of any qualifying score. The Careys hugged it out again.

When all eight scores showed up on the board and the Careys realized Jade won gold, you guessed it, another embrace.

“Having my dad here means everything to me, » Jade Carey, 21, said. « « This is all we’ve ever dreamed of. It’s just really special to be able to get this medal with him out there by my side. He’s supported me 100 percent the whole time.”

Jade then walked past her teammates in the stands on her way to claim her gold medal during the ceremony. She met with the media in the mixed zone and was then ushered into the press conference room, where she and her dad hugged it out again.

“I’m super proud of her, » Brian Carey said of his daughter after a disappointing vault final the previous night. « She was able to refocus and get back out after it.”
