A recent blog post from a 2012 Olympic hopeful, high jumping athlete Nicole Forrester (2008 Olympian, 7-time and reigning Canadian Champion) highlights the importance of sports and how sports has influenced her life.
"Sports you have created a fire in me, which is committed to achieving excellence. I know no barrier thanks to you! When someone tells me it can’t be done, I think "Where there’s a will there’s always a way, and I just have to find that way.” Sports you have taught me the importance of caring for others and the responsibility we all have as a society to volunteer…. Striving for altruism. I am committed to helping others achieve excellence! I walk with confidence and assurance because of you Sports. I feel blessed beyond words."
