Though the equestrian failed to qualify for the finals in the individual jumping category, she's setting herself up for victory come the August 6 team event. "All in all, I'm thrilled with the round," she told ESPN, "and I'm excited for the rest of the week."
The 29-year-old shared a picture on her Instagram ahead of going to the Tokyo Olympics. She posed in a gorgeous outfit while sitting on her horse, and captioned the picture, "That's a wrap on our final competition," she said. "Next stop Tokyo!"
Win or lose, dad and mom Patti Scialfa are cheering back home.
"They've supported me since I was little, and this has been, you know, a huge dream of mine ever since I can remember," she told Today's Hota Kotb. "And the sport has become such a passion for them, as well. So, we've, I feel like, been on this journey together. So, they were so proud of me and so happy."
While Jessica was an alternate at the 2012 Olympics in London, this marks the first time she has competed at the Games.
"Been dreaming of this since I can remember," she wrote after nabbing her ticket to Japan. "Endless gratitude for my team, friends and family for helping me make this a reality. We are Tokyo bound!!"
Needless to say, baby she was born to jump.
