As an athlete, I was surrounded by the most incredible team. All of these people, whether my coach, husband, massage therapist or manager were as dedicated to helping me reach my goals as I was.
Now, in light of all that’s been happening in sport with the sexual and verbal abuse cases, I feel even more fortunate. Today, in Montreal, another group of brave women will be publicly speaking out in a press conference about their experiences with abuse in sport. While their situation is extremely unfortunate and upsetting, these women want to use their voices to change the sports system for good so that no one ever has to go through what they went through. Let’s surround all current and future athletes with amazing people, and provide them with a safe and healthy environment to achieve their goals.
