The last 48 hours made me uneasy, proud, scared, sometimes sad, and helpless in most moments; as my Olympic dreams dangled on a thread, I was unsure of its final outcome. I am proud to be part of @teamCanada who prioritized the physical and mental health of its athletes and our team of 37 Million Canadians. 🇨🇦 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That decision was not made lightly, and we see the outcomes of today and know our decision was part of the catalyst to the eventual postponement of The Olympic Games Tokyo 202x 💖 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m happy to have this part of the equation settled so that we can as a human race focus on the covid-19 epidemic, keep our social distancing, and come out on the other end knowing we made good decisions to ensure fewer fatalities. 🙏🏽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #37millionStrong #teamCanada #tokyo2021 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @adidasterrex | @scarpana | @joerockheads | @verticalartclimbing | @flashedclimbing | @perfect_descent | @CANFund | @visaca #verticalart #CANFund #TeamVisa #climbing #train #canada
