This morning I feel alone, afraid and uncertain. I learned along with the rest of the world that the Tokyo Olympic Games will be postponed until 2021, due to the 19-COVID pandemic. I do not know how that makes you feel – perhaps the games a form of entertainment was, maybe they give you the feeling of warmth that our world gather to remember something good. Or maybe you’re an Olympian guy and this post feels like a blow. I woke up every morning for the last 6,055 days since I was 17 years old, relentlessly pursues Olympic gold. At a time like this, it’s hard not to focus on the loss, not thinking about what might have been. This is something that can be heavy with bold dreams. Sometimes it believes so strongly in this dream that you begin to think that you’ve earned it, who has been with you. Until removed. This was a sobering reminder that we do not have our dreams, those dreams are not free and are not achieved alone. The last two years of my career were the toughest by far. You have a lot of sacrifices required. My young family and I moved from Michigan to California for training. My husband quit his job to be able to my Olympic dream for support. My coach, Bob Kersee, busy, commuting two hours each day, so as to get closer to my house can train and 1-year-old daughter. Ho, doctors, agents and managers, all to pay all the help in the form of my team coached in my dream. The victims are real and I think that’s where a lot of disappointment comes. You could stand there and read them; alone, afraid and uncertain because it shows throughout adult life up to work every day and in a trice they spent all that previously had a dream, everything you seem to “deserve” is “carried away already with six words that you have to let go, “I thought it might be an entrepreneur who has had a unique idea against all odds and took the risk and bought the food truck -. those daring chasing dreams – and now you are alone, anxious and insecure session on how your company stay open. I thought you might appreciate a nice new life in this world celebrate, but I feel so lonely, anxious and insecure because you have no idea what will be the world today, such as six months. There is so much loss happens around us and it is difficult not only to focus on the negatives. We mourn our losses and collectively the other’s mourning losses, but we must continue to hope. These 6055 days ago, I was at my first outdoor World Championships in Paris, France. I took 6th place in the quarterfinals and never will be the title on the newspaper forgotten Felix flop in pro debut. I was devastated and never wanted to feel that feeling, but then came the news that the woman who won the 200m final, Kelli White tested positive for drugs improve the use of a performance. I knew at that point that sports entertainment is not everything. I knew one day I stand on that podium wanted – the right way – with my head high, my heart is full, my conscience is clear and my hand that had a sign for my heart of respect for the country I have the privilege is. I asked a lot, which makes me feel like. It is not gold medals or world record. I woke up every morning for the last 6055 days want to send a message of hope. Hope you can achieve your dreams, I hope they do it through your deep disappointment, hope that things with integrity hope you can overcome – no matter what you are facing. Today is no different. Today I am 34 years old and I am here with a message of hope. Right now things are uncertain, they are facing great challenges and loss of unimaginable proportions. But as a global community, we must wake up tomorrow morning to walk and find a new way to relentlessly pursue our wildest dreams. I am grateful that the International Olympic Committee, the Olympic Committee and Paralympic USA and USA Track & Field more important for our sport and the Olympic movement in this period. While the news of the move is disappointing, you have no doubt the right decision for us and for the world. I’m not sure what the future holds, but my goals have not changed. I hope that in 2021 the feeling of experience on this platform, and I hope it will be my journey to try to get you excited to come forward. Stay safe, stay at home, wash your hands, lead with love, control or of any other, and Art. We get this together. Allyson Felix has six Olympic gold medals, the female ever for an athlete.
