Road To Tokyo

Hello World!

Today is officially DAY 1 of our Road To Tokyo!!! Watching Karine and Jackie make us proud in Rio was an incredible experience and we could not have hoped for a better performance from the two of them! We are so excited to hear about the entire journey from all of the experts who were in Rio with the girls.

Watching the Olympics was tough. It was hard because it is something you want to enjoy and watch with full commitment, like when you are young and ambitious about your future, but then the realization that we were basically there… just 0.7 away, sucks. It feels unfair and for a few moments you feel sad, but as soon you see your friends on TV kicking butt and winning medals, you start to realize that even the smallest thought of sadness is not worth it!

It’s the Olympics, there will be another chance! It’s all about coming together to watch our Canadian Athletes represent everything that you stand for and feel inspired by their stories, their struggles and their drive to achieve this ultimate goal. There were so many tears of joy during these games just knowing that I have met, spoken, and trained with most of these people. They have become my peers and I couldn’t be more excited of what they have achieved!

Our superstars have had the trip of their lives and in 4 years we will try to get that chance to live it as well. Each and every day is going to

be difficult and sometimes we will question everything that we have worked for, but in time it will be worth all the energy and the pain. This team has been through a lot, and with that there is a huge amount of fight in us. We will make this happen, we will be the Olympians we deserve to be.
