Below are images that help capture our final run in the Team Sprint and ultimate Bronze medal. The complexity of emotions and life experiences wrapped up in that 52 plus seconds will likely never be fully detailed in words. But these photos do provide frozen moments in time to reflect upon.
These images show the focus and athletic drive necessary to compete with the World’s best. The moment that life seems to pause as I fix my gaze on the timing board…the triumphant elation of one hand held high in response to the screams of friends and family spread throughout the stands. The honor of standing among the best athletes in the world and at last the embrace of Sara. There is no person that knows better the sacrifices and challenges we have faced to get here, but Sara’s reactions say it all…tears of joy. Life lived without limitations.
