Jenna Strauch's message to her parents minutes after her semi-final swim in Tokyo on Thursday sums up the Olympic swimmer's mindset.
Included in the message were two key words "unfinished business".
At her first Olympics, Jenna missed out on a berth in the 200m breaststroke final by just 0.52 of a second.
The 24-year-old gave it her all, finished sixth in the faster of the two semi-finals and went within a whisker of racing for a medal in Friday's final.
Strauch didn't dwell on what could have been.
"Jenna sent a message to say that she's disappointed, but that she has unfinished business,'' her father, Dean Strauch, said on Thursday.
"She's pretty keen to keep going."
Dean and his wife Jane have been there every step of Jenna's swimming career and they watched on from their lounge room in Bendigo with an immense sense of pride.
"As a family we're so proud of what Jenna has achieved,'' Dean said.
"For what she's achieved it's been superb. At that level you have to swim your best time at heat level and she did that last night.
"I know she'll be annoyed (to miss the final), but she's gone from 14th in the world in 2019 to ninth today, so it's a great effort."
The pathway to representing her country wasn't easy for Jenna.
From relocating to Melbourne at a young age to suffering a debilitating illness that put swimming on the backburner for the best part of 18 months, Jenna has faced her fair share of adversity.
"It's a credit to her because she's always wanted to achieve this,'' Dean said.
"Like in any sport, you have ups and downs, but it comes down to how much you want to work when things get hard.
"Jenna will do that. The good things come easy then."
Dean said his family had been overwhelmed by the support Jenna received from her hometown in Bendigo this week.
"The momentum gained everyday and Bendigo certainly embraced her,'' he said.
"The support has been amazing and I think Bendigo has got some exposure out of Jenna over the past week."
Dean and Jane were invited to join the PODS (Parents of Dolphins) in Noosa, but the COVID-19 restrictions meant that was not an option.
"It would have been nice to go to Noosa, but it couldn't happen,'' he said.
"We would have liked to have some people around to our house to watch Jenna swim, but you're not allowed to do that either."
Dean, who played five VFL/AFL games for Carlton, said the emotions he felt watching his daughter perform at the elite level were "quite different" to what he experienced on the footy field.
"Playing footy at the elite level you're in control and you're competing,'' he said.
"Watching Jenna, who I'm so close to, you're in her hands. You go through so many different emotions.
"About half an hour before the race the nervousness really sinks in. It's a different level."
In the short-term, Jenna only has a few weeks to recover from her Olympic debut.
At the end of August she'll compete for Team Iron in the prestigious International Swimming League.
"They race weekly for a month or two, so she'll get plenty of top class racing,'' Dean said.
Longer-term, the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham are scheduled for next July.
"Jenna's got more to come,'' Dean said.
"We're really looking forward to what's next."
