Favorite Sports Memory:
Although every season has special moments that create lasting memories. One that sticks out the most was in 2007 when I stood on the top of the podium, at the Pan Am Games, and heard O’ Canada. That experience brought tears to my eyes and has instilled a desire to hear it again. It is that memory that helps me to train harder and drives me to be better!
Pain is temporary, it may last a minute, an hour, a day or a year. If I give up however, it lasts forever.
