Courage Is Going On

Kayla Harrison speaks out, about how she came back from being sexually abused by her old judo coach back here in Ohio with the help of her new judo coaches in Boston.

Also, the excruciating (and boring) detail of visualizing an Olympic day. A great look at the nitty-gritty of competitive sports on this level.

UPDATE: WDTN talks about this part of the story. As I thought, the local news outlets were all protecting Harrison’s identity at the time, since she was both a victim and a minor, and only brought up the story when Harrison did. The arrest of her coach, I had heard about, because his identity wasn’t up for protection.
