“I coach freestyle wrestling. I used to be a wrestler as well. I was on the national team and represented Canada at the 2008 Olympics.
It was very surreal and I don’t know if people realize what it’s all about. Amateur sport is fuelled by an undying passion that pushes people to overcome larger than life obstacles. I did it because it was something I was truly passionate about – something that was in my heart and that I truly believed in.
I learned so much about myself throughout my career as a freestyle wrestler. The whole process tested my values, beliefs and most importantly my character. It was priceless.”
