(CNN)Stephanie Labbe is smiling.

Swedish striker Kosovare Asllani has just placed the ball on the spot to take the first kick of a penalty shootout to decide the gold medal match of the women’s 2020 Olympic soccer final. Amidst the sweltering Tokyo heat, two hours of play could not separate Sweden and Canada — now, a lifetime of training and dreams hinges on 10 spot-kicks. It’s about as pressurized as it gets for a footballer and yet, 12 yards away, Canadian goalkeeper Labbe is smiling.Two days later, Olympic gold medalist and penalty shootout hero Labbe isn’t smiling.Read MoreShe lies in a dark room. She has spent most of the previous 48 hours there.Overstimulated and feeling “completely dissociated” from her victory, she cannot process any of the thousands of congratulatory messages and media enquiries blowing up her phone in the wake of Canada’s historic triumph — the country’s first ever Olympic gold in the women’s soccer event.To understand her numbness following the achievement of a lifelong dream, Labbe takes us back to the first game of the tournament against hosts Japan.Canada's Stephanie Labbe saves Brazilian Rafaelle's penalty during the women's quarterfinal shootout at the Tokyo Olympics.Canada's Stephanie Labbe saves Brazilian Rafaelle's penalty during the women's quarterfinal shootout at the Tokyo Olympics.Canada’s Stephanie Labbe saves Brazilian Rafaelle’s penalty during the women’s quarterfinal shootout at the Tokyo Olympics.OverflowDuring the first-half, Labbe sustained a painful rib injury. Prophetically, she proceeded to save a penalty before — unable to continue — she was substituted.Unbeknownst to Labbe, the injury would dredge and then stir up a whirlpool of anxieties and mental baggage that had built up across the preceding 18 months — the insecurity of her position on the national team, the postponing of the Olympics, a new national team coach, and the inability to train as a team for a long period.Labbe receives medical treatment during the match against Japan.Labbe receives medical treatment during the match against Japan.Labbe receives medical treatment during the match against Japan.”I don’t think I realized at the time how much I was holding onto, how much the challenges of the past year and a half had affected me and were still underlying there in my system — getting to the Olympics wasn’t just a magical cure for all of this.” Labbe told CNN.”That takes a toll over time and sometimes we don’t always see or feel what that toll is until something comes in and kind of shakes it up a bit.”That’s what that injury did … it was like the water was almost getting to the brim. I felt good and confident but just that one extra thing is what spilt it over.”Despite the ongoing pain of her injury and a number of trips to the hospital, Labbe and her team agreed she was physically fit to continue. She missed the following match against Chile but returned to the line-up for the final group fixture against Great Britain. READ: Nadia Nadim: ‘I’m actually the picture of everything the Taliban don’t want their women to be’However, unseen wounds were making it a war on two fronts.”My adrenaline was so heightened, and my neuromuscular system was so finely tuned that I struggled to come down between games, which resulted in high levels of anxiety and multiple panic attacks,” said Labbe.”I knew it had nothing to do with performance anxiety, I was fully confident and nerves were not an issue on matchday. It was the second that whistle blew, that moment where I had to come down and relax a bit before the next game.”Labbe was so overstimulated that she did not train between the quarterfinal and the finals — a fact made all the more astonishing by the back-to-back clean sheets she kept against Brazil and tournament favorites the United States en route to the final. For Labbe the pitch is her “happy zone”, a “release.”Years of meticulous training, work with a sports psychologist, meditation and other mindfulness exercises have helped to forge an athlete with laser focus on matchday — present and supremely confident.'Humility over hubris': See the most heartwarming moments from Tokyo 2020 'Humility over hubris': See the most heartwarming moments from Tokyo 2020 'Humility over hubris': See the most heartwarming moments from Tokyo 2020 JUST WATCHED’Humility over hubris’: See the most heartwarming moments from Tokyo 2020 ReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

‘Humility over hubris’: See the most heartwarming moments from Tokyo 2020 02:17National Minister of Defence So as penalties in the gold medal match loomed, Labbe looked like the most relaxed goalkeeper in the history of penalty shoot-outs.”For me, I really was enjoying the moment,” Labbe said.”I remember as soon as the whistle went, I knew that the players on my team were going to feel a little bit of that stress and pressure, knowing that they were going to be stepping up to take shots.”So as an older, more experienced player on the team, as a leader on the team, I wanted to do whatever I could to give them confidence and calmness to try to take that pressure off of them.”I know how much body language can have an affect on people so I remember walking into that huddle and I was like, ‘Steph, smile, look relaxed, look super confident so that if anyone is a bit nervous and they look up and they see you, they’re gonna see you being confident and you showing this relaxed, composed version of yourself.'”Visit CNN.com/sport for more news, features and videosPart of the smiling demeanor, Labbe admits, was also to project pressure onto the Swedish takers. And yet, beyond a functional purpose to both ease and amplify anxiety, her grin also came from a genuine place of joy.”I remember telling myself, ‘Steph you’re in a shootout to win a gold medal, at worst case you have an Olympic silver medal, you’ve already achieved so much and now is the time just to enjoy this,’ Labbe said.”You’re not going to get this moment back, you’re not going to get this opportunity again. It might be the same but it might look a bit different, feel a little bit different, so just enjoy it.'”I remember taking that time to be completely present, because what an amazing moment that was for me personally, for our team. We had made history already just going into that shootout so there was this sense of calmness because I was just enjoying it and happy to be there.”The smiling worked. Labbe saved two penalties, Sweden failing to hit the target with two more, as Canada triumphed 3-2 in the shootout to spark euphoric scenes on the pitch of the International Stadium Yokohama.

Did we actually win a gold medal?’ I don’t know if it fully sunk in and I don’t know when it actually will fully sink in.”Labbe’s healing process began upon her return to Canada. Days camping away with her partner and Canadian cycling Olympian, Georgia Simmerling, allowed her to “decompress” and continue what would ultimately become the summer of a lifetime.DecompressionAs fall beckoned, Labbe was an Olympic gold medalist, a fiancé, and preparing for a move to a new country — having signed with one of the world’s biggest clubs, Paris Saint-Germain. “I took a few days with my partner to go away camping, unplug for a bit and decompress,” Labbe said.”That was super helpful. I think not having to talk about it a lot, being able to just go through my self-healing process and then when I finally reconnected with my friends and family that’s when it started to really hit.”Since then, day-by-day, talking to different people, talking about my experience and just seeing the impact that we’ve had on our country is really amazing. I feel so honored and proud to have been a part of that and to have done it with some of the most incredible people I’ve ever met.” View this post on Instagram

Simmerling, who in September retired from cycling and started her own sports marketing and agency business for female athletes, has long been a central cog of Labbe’s support system.”I think she is a great opposition to me in the sense that Georgia is pretty black and white and sees things in one way that’s very different to me,” Labbe said.”I think that helps me heal because for me I definitely get tunnel vision in certain senses when I’m going through hard times, I really start to narrow in and it’s really tough to get out of that spiral — she gives a good opposition to that and challenges me in different ways.”She’s gone through her own challenges and I think the more open and vulnerable I’ve been with her the more she’s been able to be that with me.”Fireworks explode over Tokyo's National Stadium at the end of the Olympics' closing ceremony on Sunday, August 8.
