With Rio 2016 officially closed, the conversation shifts to 2018 (#winteriscoming).
I'm sure these games have inspired millions around the world to become active, try a new sport and (hopefully) support athletes.
The athletes you just watched had support from friends, family, sponsors, federations to make it to their day at the games to have their moment.
So I have an ACTION item for you - It's time to support the next generation! I have applied for a $5000 grant from Canada's Dairy Farmers from the Champions fund. I will put it directly towards my team & race fees for this season. These are just a few of the costs that are apart of being an athlete, but these are the ones that get me directly onto the track to train and compete.
If you could take a moment to click on my profile (www.womenchampions.ca/champions-fund…) and then CLICK THE HEART at the top of the profile to share on either Facebook or twitter - OR BOTH!
