A little off topic from Broncos' discussion, but I thought I would put this out there for anyone who has a story whether from the Amateur or Professional Ranks...Adult or youth. If you have an inspirational sports story, I'd like to read it. If possible, please include link(s)...Thanks
I'll start of with Kayla Harrison..Her story is one of overcoming sexual abuse by a former coach; thoughts of suicide; & rescue, who persevered to be the 1st US Judo Player to ever win an Olympic Gold...Link
This Videoo runs about 15 min. and includes the Gold Medal Match as well as the award ceremony.
On a personal note: I've met Jimmy Pedro several times...He is a good friend of my daughter's Judo Instructor ( Dave Allen ) and has put on several clinics/camps over the last several years here in MT. & He is truly a Class Act & one of the best Judo Coaches in the Country. Kayla will probably be coming to MT next year as she & Mr. Allen are also good friends & I very much look forward to meeting her.
