Skiing is a happy place for me 🖤 And I’m grateful for that. During my career, I had some amazing role models - a powerhouse group of women paving the way in ski racing. This week, many of these same women are using their power to change sport for the better, for the safer. I find it heartbreaking that, after all the courage required to fly down mountains around the world for their country, they have to call on another form of it to recall stories of abuse from a ski team coach... abusing his authority, abusing their trust, just fully ruining the magical mentorship that CAN be in a team environment. So many coaches Of mine taught me lifelong skills and instilled a deep sense of belief - that I could do anything.. earn anything.. if it really mattered to me. How differently this role can be ‘used’. And abused. I’m sorry, girls/moms/idols, you experienced this and are now reliving it. I’m forever grateful for the mom I aspire to be one day that sport will be safer because you came forward. #abusefreesport #sportsansabus
