I am so inspired by these brave women for speaking out. Sport is supposed to be a place where athletes get to chase their dreams, not a place to have to live through such a nightmare.

Athletes are so incredibly vulnerability to their coach, etc. I looked up to these woman as an alpiner. Their strength is profound to come fourth and speak up. The culture needs to change, and yes, even in Canada

Athletes and parents need to trust the entire sport system with their safety. It should not matter what sport an athlete chooses, safety should be universally understood, expected and applied with no exceptions. Doing so is essential for society

Feeling safe in your sport should be a right not a privilege offered to few. I have been fortunate enough to be surrounded by supportive, positive influencers throughout my career, but I know everybody isn’t so lucky.
