George, a seasoned Team USA contributor and a gold medalist from the 2016 Olympic triumph in Rio, expressed his gratitude, noting, “It’s always an honor to still be in consideration to represent the USA. I think for all of us, we cherish and embrace that and have an opportunity to do that with some of the best in the world. Can never pass that up.”
