    They also did not understand why the 26-year-old 'diving queen' WAS willing to give up her career and become a housewife.

    I wanted TO stop training and go home but I knew that this was impossible.

    ... was willing to give up her career and (to) become a housewife. The infinitive 'to' before 'become' is often omitted to make the sentence simplier. Therefore, changing 'become' to 'became' is wrong.

    ...I wanted to stop training and (to) go home... . Same as above, 'went' is wrong.
