So when i when i was certainly behind him and i saw that clock strike Point to when i scored the to and in the buzzer went off. It was like it was kind of like a while ceiling kind of indescribable. Like you have to be in that situation. I feel it because like it was like i'm olympic gold medalist and i did it at twenty one years old and and there was some some was definitely special to do against a an opponent like that. Yeah now obviously if you go out and you beat the guy tech fall the attend nothing or technical. Superiority went to call in the olympics. I take fox. I'm it was watch college but it would have been great obviously would have been an amazing moment for you to go out and do something like that but this is something that's going to live on forever and we've got to be honest. I wrote about it after it happened. I said one of the craziest most insane finishes in olympic history to pull off that win with like you said point. Two seconds remaining on the clock. I mean i'm sure you would have loved to teno win but be honest like the fact that you had to pull out the way you did. I mean this is gonna live forever. I mean that's a moment you know twenty years from now they're going to be replaying that moment. Whenever we talk about olympic wrestling. I would've loved to ten at the beginning to max. I thought i add it in. I took him out of bounds for four pointer. But they didn't give it to me so i had to refocus Javed's geno winning olympic finals would have been historical by. I think The way things happen in the way the word the the world aligned that lasts takedown made even more historical and so that pitcher so enough to two appliances hopefully going to be an iconic photo and be brought up. When i'm forty years old in the future and hopefully kids look up to that fisher in kids that video distant never give up never saw russell. Absolutely I hate to be that guy gave. I gotta ask you the gold medal nearby. Do you keep it like with you like. Where's the gold medal. Right now is right there. It's like what is one of those accomplishments i imagine. You probably never get sick like talking about or thinking about it right because the sub you work so hard for your entire life. I mean for people that don't know obviously we're more of a mixed martial arts site but For people that are like you literally were born into wrestling. Your name is gable. Dan stevenson and obviously. Of course i actually had a chance of. You must go to interview dan gable which was one of my favorite interviews of all time. That guy's the icon. But you were literally at born for this which is crazy to think about to get that gold medal at twenty one. I mean i can't even imagine the emotion honest. There's so many crazy mostly. I mean last. I got a gold medal. I and take it off like three days. I had it on me every plant. And we're like our showing it to homeys on facetime stuff in. I mean to do it as such a young age. I mean it's most definitely life changing. You know what i'm saying. I'm a lot of kids a lot of kids. That are twenty one. Don't even get to go outside the country and see different places in the so many kids that don't go outside the country in russell world championships especially the olympic. 'cause we only said six people if everyone qualifies so for me to be for me to go out there in influenced in next generation. A young kids that come up in wanna do that. Same thing assets young aids is is crazy and hopefully kids look at that and be inspired to step on a wrestling mat in and go out there and do a thing. I know you've heard before. But i mean you're the first guy at this weight class to do it. You know in. So many years for america amar baumgartner's last guy to do it and that's the back in the nineties. and heavyweight has always been a really difficult class with the american wrestlers. And obviously there's no shame in that but to go out and do that in that way. A big deal because you are a different breed of heavyweight wrestler. Which is again. I know you've heard a million times. Your your celebration with the barf backflip and everything but you are a different. Kind of headway. Wrestle. you're not the guy was just gonna lean on people you literally go out there and you know out. Move out fast and all these kind of things. You are a different kind of heavyweight. I mean i i just don't athleticism there confidence or not being so. I like going out there doing backflips in and mega sure. You know not. A lot of people see what happens will wrestling the results in so for me to go out there and do backflips in and put on a good sober people as bringing outside people to come watch wrestling. And that's what that's what we always wanted. We wanted to grow the sport and grow bigger thing in. I mean yeah twenty. Nine years later after. Bruce baumgartner one s i think is first or second one matt sir There's a new heavyweight champ for usa for me to go out there and put on the red white blue in bring a gold medal home in here that national anthem. When i'm on the the gold medal stages is some special. And hopefully like i said this inspiration for others in Motivation factor for for for the younger kids. Absolutely i i said. Margaret mark coleman was a buddy of mine in wrestling three of our covert heavyweight and going to bruce bumgarner. But yeah. that's a tough. That's a tough way class that you're gonna do. What you did is is a big deal. And i know there's no There's no team medal in the olympics. Like there is in college where you win a national championship like that but you america won the most medals you know in wrestling between the men's and women's to goldman three goals in total two on the ministry mean i know again. It's not a team competition olympics. But you gotta be happy with how things played out for team usa at at this olympics. Oh yeah everyone everyone out there to the job.

"Reality steve. Thank you all for tuning in. We got two great interviews in today's podcast. First up suzanne somers. She is the creator of the bachelor data. instagram account. Also bachelor on talk and then after her former olympic gold medal winning in the all around in the two thousand four olympics. Us women's gymnastics team. Carly patterson joins us to talk about the simone biles story from this past olympics which pretty much dominated the headlines. You know what i'm talking about. We get an insider perspective of somebody who was actually a gold medal. Winning olympic gymnast. So we'll get to that momentarily a lot to get to a lot but none of it is going to be bachelor related in terms of my open here. Because you know what i've had to say about katie and greg and the finale and all that there's nothing more to add you saw the all the reader e mails yesterday. It's like split down the middle fifty fifty people hate katie people. Hey greg it's just like okay. We're done were moving on however as you know. The final four episodes of f boy island have been released. They are on. Hbo max right now. Some of you listening to this podcast have stayed up late and watched. All of them have completed the season and have seen what went down. If you have not. I would suggest fast forwarding through this next Through the open because in this whole open. I'm going to talk about the final four episodes because i don't want to wait 'til next week i feel it almost be old news but i want to get my thoughts on the final four episodes of f boy island and i will say this right off the bat. I was one for three. I was wrong so before. I dive into it just warning fast forward right now. If you don't want to hear what happens in the ending of wa island so ready three two and one so i was one for three asked me which ones we wrong on. I'll tell you this i thought. Cj was picking casey. I thought he just got such the edit to where you know they him to come back which will get to momentarily and you know. She had him sleep on the cot but then she went down and then they did get to sleep together up in her room. And i was just like they're going out of their way to show that casey is just this reformed f boy. She's gonna pick him. And i was totally wrong. I'm glad she picked jared now by the time. This podcast comes out. I don't know if any of these three women are going to address where they're at with these guys but I hope i hope she's with. I was glad she picked him. I was wrong on. Sarah not that. I thought sarah was going to pick josh. I i definitely thought she was picking garrett. I thought they were going to be together. as you say steve. Have you watched geared all season. You shocked he picked the money Now he played her a plate me. I thought he was gonna. I thought he was going to be a reformed f boy and i thought that was his going to be his thing because they made it. So you saw the The edit for garrett all season it was so skewed him being such an f. Boy i thought the redemption thing whatever you wanna call it was gonna be him at the end saying you know what yeah. I was an f. Boy when i came here. But i've seen my ways. And i wanna get with. Sarah and i wanna see what happens. And he totally played her. But again i don't know if they've already addressed it Probably too early in the morning for them to address it but keep you know if you wanna follow them. on instagram guaranteeing. A lot of them will probably address now that the episodes are out where exactly they stand with their final guys. I don't know. And i was definitely the only one i got right wasn't a kia while i'd be shocked if her an og jared last very long. I knew she wasn't picking fernando that was just he just never got an edit enough all season to make you think she was going to pick him so yeah. I was one for three a couple of things. The one thing that. I t's last week that i said i wasn't a huge fan of was the whole allowing casey back and the reason i say that it's like i said i get why they did. She clearly was into him. I just didn't understand the point. Of why was he just allowed to just walk off the set and hitch a cab over to the villa and get back on the show. Clearly that was allowed by production. But i'm sure other guys that were in the limbo and the nice guys grotto. I'm sure they would have liked to come back and talk to sarah or nikita or cj to state their case on something about themselves like why did you just let casey do that and then play it off like he really quote unquote escaped and hitched a ride back. Like come on. Just they let him do that. And i just thought that was. I just thought that was stupid. I really thought it was dumb. I didn't like it. And then i was like but i said last week i need to see the last few episodes play out because if they allow other guys to come back then i wouldn't have had much of a problem with it but they didn't..

Olympic Stories More Lovely Than Silver and Costly Than Gold

"The olympics ended. Sunday night though. Many of us hardly noticed they were on hard to cheer for athletes representing our country. Who don't seem to actually like our country that plus the insufferable push to sexualize. These games have just turned many of us off. Well that's a shame because there really were a number of inspiring athletes. That were competing in tokyo. This year their performances in their stories are worth knowing and were celebrating like sydney mclaughlin after winning the gold in the four hundred meter hurdles last week. She said this what i have in christ is far greater than what i have or don't have in life. And she went on to say. I pray that my journey may be a clear depiction of submission and obedience to god. Another female runner who shocked the world was only a teenager. Adding mu won an olympic gold in the eight hundred meters as a nineteen year old. She's the first. Us woman to win the event since nineteen sixty eight and in an interview said this as a follower of christ our main goal is to live in the image of jesus in order to connect to god and then there's wrestler tamra a stock the first african american woman to win gold for the us in wrestling. Her interview after the olympics will bring a smile to the face of any american and her testimony of god's faithfulness just put it all in perspective back before the olympic. She told faith wire this. It's by the grace of god. I'm even able to move my feet. So i just leave it in his hands and i pray that all the practice my coaches put me through pays off and every single time it does mensa stock also noted that her dad well he would have been the loudest one in the room but tragically. He died in a car crash. After one of tamara's wrestling meets back in high school and he also likely would have approved of the way. His daughter responded after she won. Gold she said in an interview. That's now gone viral quote. I love representing the us. I love living here. i love it. And i'm so happy. I get to represent the usa another olympian who set a record despite incredible challenges. Four hundred meter sprinter allyson felix in tokyo. She earned the distinction of becoming the most decorated. us track star in history within medals over five olympics. however she almost didn't live to see this one she'd already won six gold medals three silvers before becoming pregnant back in two thousand eighteen faced with a choice between her career and her child. Allison chose the child and she endured a challenging pregnancy. That nearly took her life and the life of her unborn baby.

"To the alley on the run show. I'm your host. Ali feller and i am the real and honored to get to share a very special conversation with you today on the show. My guest today is wyomia. Taya's wyomia taya's is a two time. Olympian and four-time olympic medalists and she was the first person male or female to win back to back olympic gold medals in the one hundred meters. Meiomi up was nineteen when she competed at the nineteen sixty four olympic games in tokyo so it was really fun to hear her. Reflect on this year's games also in tokyo where on the day that we talked a thing mo won her first olympic gold medal and nineteen years old lots of parallels. There wyomia has an incredible life story. She grew up in georgia. During jim crow era and on this episode she talks about experiencing racism and segregation from a very young age. When she was fourteen her house burned down and just a year later. Wyoming died those two experiences a one year span did a number on wyomia. How could they not and from then on. She says she stops talking very much. Everything she did was a one word answer and she just got quiet but her legs did the talking for her and was a force on the run. It was really powerful hearing her talk about going to tokyo for the games in nineteen sixty four because it was the first time she got to be a that wasn't segregated where people from all over the world came together and we're that was celebrated then in nineteen sixty eight wyoming returned to the games to defend her one hundred meter title and those games in mexico city during a time of great political social and racial unrest. You'll hear why mia talk about her role in the olympic protests that year and how a pair of shorts did the talking for her on the podium. I felt like we covered so much in this conversation and still only scratched the surface of all of that makes wyomia. Who by the way is seventy five years old now lives in los angeles. This is about all that makes her special but you can read. More of her in her book is called tiger bell the wyomia titus story. Now please join me. In welcoming the legend the icon wyoming titus to the alley on the run show wyomia. It is such an honor to have you here on the alley on the run. Show thank you so much for being here and welcome to the show. How are you. i'm good thank you well and hopefully you are and just got back from the east coast so a little weary. Not fresh off the plane. While thank you so much for making the time to do this. You are amazing. I'm so excited to get to share your story with the alley on the run show community today and what we do on the show. Is we start every episode. With what i call the warm up. This is where you tell everyone who you are where you call home and what you do. My name is widely targets at competed in two olympic games in nineteen sixty four in tokyo japan in tokyo and Where i wanna go. Merriman hundred meters than our full about one hundred meter relay team took second in three or four years later. I competed in nineteen sixty eight games in mexico city where i won the hundred meters again becoming the first person in track and field to reduce such and then out for about one hundred media rela- team to I so i have. A total of three goals. Met also went silver medal. I am originally from griffin georgia. But i reside in los angeles california all right so i need to know. Where do you keep all those medals or hanging in your home somewhere or they safely in a shoebox. Where do you keep your metals. They're not hanging any place. My my mom had employee number years in what she passed. I got my medals back in and they were in the underwear door and now they're in a space amazing. The safe is a good place. It's amazing how many people are like. Oh they're just wrapped in a sock drawer. I'm like i would want them right in front of me every day. Just to look at them. But i love hearing where people keep their medals. So have you been watching. The olympic games like you said the first time you competed. It was in tokyo. Were back there now. Have you been tuning into this year's games at all. I have loved it a whole tokyo amis so special because when i went there and sixty four i was nineteen and it was more like is was so open just being in another country seeing so many people in living in olympic village and have an opportunity to visit and see all the different people from all the devolve parts of the world for me. It was such a ghost time. I learned so much about me and so much about different cultures. While we're there well. I was thinking of you this morning in part because i knew we were getting ready to have this conversation but also because this morning was the eight hundred meter final and we watched a thing just absolutely dominate. Win the gold medal. She's also nineteen and that's how old you were when you competed in tokyo. So were you thinking about that at all. I don't know if you tune in for that race it would have been really early for you to tune in for that one since it was early early. But you know i think she. She has very young to go and win. Eight hundred meters the second time woman. American woman has done because matlin man and he was my teammate. From tennessee state did it in nineteen sixty eight and no one talked about it. No one says and like even now they are saying people be up until now they talking matt. You know it was always a man had done this the but it's matlin and now we have mojo in just say it is the best thing it's such a great thing for women and women's voice so any idea what might have been going through her mind as she was in tokyo getting ready to line up a nineteen year old halfway across the world competing for the first time. I can't help but like i said. Make that connection between you being there in the same country however many decades ago any idea what she might have been feeling being over there and getting ready to compete on the largest stage in the nineteen and It's your first olympics and olive. you're more into. Oh this is great. I'm so happy. I mean for me. Let me put it this way. My coach kinda groomed us as grooming media outlets first time out. People don't make the team if he do. That's fine and when idea. She's at well not very much from you and which helped me a lot. I don't know if that's the same thing with mobile. But i tell you use because of the youth and all that and where you are in your head where you coming there for a reason you accost. Let's do your best and hopefully events could be a gold medal really if it's not whatever best is always to me ain't nat think of more that way that she's satisfied with that and she. I mean when i look at her run is like i don't know can be her. She means very good and very poised in very in tune to how her by works have fashiony derived a house low. she might need lorette. Yeah i mean. She looks like she's jogging out there. She's doing quite the opposite but she just. She has such a beautiful. I watching her so it was really fun to watch that this morning. See her take the gold and think about you. Having done the same thing in the same place. I just i think that's so awesome so i wanna go back in time. I want to hear your whole story today. So if we were to go back and meet young wyomia growing up like you said you grew up in rural georgia which was during the jim crow era in many ways a very different time than right now and also a lot of things that we are still talking about and that hasn't changed a whole lot so growing up on a dairy farm. Youngest of four children paints a picture of your childhood this. I grew up in griffin georgia..

I agree that goes. I'm like i'm having an internal struggle obviously football team. But the last part really resonated with me But it also resonates with my rockets as well as well as the the lottery teams. You think about it. A lot of them have those moments where i was more impressed with. I guess the team's ability to play defense. Yes because that's a place in which we struggled in by during the league. Obviously we had a lot of young players. And i'm sure it's going to be different like this is like you know i'm not gonna play the these these players out but it's almost like playing on like rookie or superstar right. You're saying you know what i mean and you get to the nba. And this is where. I guess the preseason and these kind of things kind of get people big headache because it's like. Hey you're playing on you know a rookie or playing on superstar and then when the league stars it goes up to hall of fame or all madden and then those same things that you saw. Don't look quite so great anymore because the level of competition is different Right so it's like on yesterday sunday. Hey rockers look gray playing against a team that that has some great young talent. This is the first time. A lot of these guys are played together rang. Been we go on to play the pistons snacks. Let's see how let's see if it's consistent if these young guys can be consistent than when they get to the nba and they become. I don't want to nba when it gets to the league.

He looks not just in stature but he looks like a young paul. I saw like he just. He just has that motion in game. That i'll have when you first came out right before he joins has really good instincts to which is something. That just can't yeah and i'm sure that there's a language barrier That i know you know just like yahoo and any other international player where english isn't their first language. They know somewhere obviously but it's not as his native tongue but i'm sure basketball language. He can be is universal. Yes he is. Yeah it really is looking. Language is where there's tation. Yeah so talking his free through team. Oh yeah out. I'm looking for it again. I look forward to seeing it into kay. I'm sure they'll put it in there. I don't think they might because you think about it. It's a unique one. And you've already heard while i heard the announcers making a whole segment out of it yet. So it's highly possible that maybe not in the first rendition. But i would say as time goes on. He becomes more positive popular. Yeah they're not gonna have to do that just to do it. He has become like a very popular figure in the bay like that. I highly doubt they're going to just do that off the job. Of course. I'm like another thing that i noticed during this game because we'll we'll stay here Ahead to the other game in a moment. did you notice that. They started counting during the free throws i. I heard it slightly. I didn't think that i think i mean now. Going to become a really bad habit for big men. Go to shoot free thrace.

"Oh what goes nothing. Stop it staff. Espn cells yeah. Big time I don't know. I mean. I'm hopefully this narrative changes in the future because it it really hurts the people who just might be there first time competing this might be you know their first time getting bronze or even silver. Exactly you know. i like. They've gotten anything now. They've been battling for four years to a point where now they at least got up to bronze and silver. But i don't know. I think that's just a narrative that not only do people need to change. But of course the media needs to change and really show some respect to these athletes. Who i know the mentality from the great ricky bobby his if you not i last but this is ridiculous. This is ridiculous. Hey yes big time. Ridiculous this But we did have summer league action as you did mention. We had the top hicks Playing in in session as the number two and three pig played against each other yesterday you had green versus mobely iraqis versus cavs Which i thought was absolutely awesome. Not just the rocket launch. It was not because rockets wine but dealing green rockets one is well. Of course here. Act doc is grinning ear to ear. That has rockets that he didn't have a smile on his face for it. I mean there was some sloppy moments in the first half of course first game any. They're all pretty young. And as i mentioned to you my experience of the first half going into the second half was interrupted by yet another fire alarm which kinda set just seems cook yet. They really do Learn to use the glass top. Even give you instructions in the drawer specifically outta cooking class. Stop yeah and it's important to know how to clean it because if you don't clean it in i guess be another reason. You smoke alarm. Go and that's different. The rockets are high. Alarms are going off in vegas outside and inside but romley we would be out there watching these games. I would love to wash that. Knicks game. I would have really enjoyed watching it rockets. Game with the big man himself. Doc in the low but unfortunately covert said now bam and of course dr faucet. Nah them we good too. Yeah i would say this And it's gonna be interesting Because number one day cunningham play in the next game which i thought they struggled and i did mention it off the show that i felt like the media was going to have a field day with it. I haven't read or seen anything just yet. But it's just a game one exactly and obviously the pistons team struggled so i would assume that they're young. People will struggle as well. But i saw some bright spots out there outside of cake cunningham that the cast have. I don't know if they're going to use them but bear bear right..

Shane doc illegal. How you doing. How was you weekend the hype in vegas summer league action. We had highlights. We had some low lights but people forget about the low lights because of course usa. Men's won gold in basketball. So that's all people are talking about. Oh my gosh they did it of. I knew they can always do it. Those who say that are liars. They're casuals and had no business talking about basketball. Yeah i don't know where these enthusiasts game from as i said on friday i didn't even know that we were still in contention for gold so Yeah but then again. that's been the common theme. I would say for the olympics and united states altogether. Is that if it's not gold that don't matter you know winning silver and bronze like the worst thing puzzles in to say this. But it's stupid and it's also don't gonna filter nothing like if you wanna know. It's in a chief. It exactly the people that people even people go throughout their lives is a once in a lifetime opportunity for many people people to to come away with a metal. There are people who'd never even sniffed it. These these olympics we had we had countries that didn't even metal before until this year and we're over here talking about. Oh we dink gold. How privilege are we. The united states pretty rough man pretty dang ref. All i know is that it kind of takes away from the people who who are competing in maybe just fell slightly short exactly well. I'm sure people are getting on luca because lavinia didn't even win bronze right. I don't hear about anybody else on that team. But luca exactly. I don't hear about anybody else on that team. Because that's all those that are covering the olympics. Novell is just luca. There are some really really good players there again. I've said this at the start of the olympic storm. These exhibition game where people were losing their minds. Acting like the sky is falling Like an eighth up poll or short story very short story and honestly the olympics. Really flew by I i started. Yeah but it is like when it first started. I was like let me jump into it and then the next day. I know it's like coming to an end now mean we had. Us women wedding water polo. Which was pretty incredible to watch. Of course the us ladies winning goal for basketball as well. Same fair and by in the torrisi tarazi won five gold medals. Which is the first in basketball here. It rained the olympics. Right opening not won gold so all is frightened world. Yeah thanks folks but not to take away anything from what you know the top five countries right you got china. The rotc did pretty well. Right actually. I guess in third would be great britain. If we're talking about total total awards obviously goes united states. China japan But total total awards right which they really should be gone based off. It should be going off of the total amount of actual medals yet. And i think that something that people do here even on google it sorted by gold. Yes right so china thirty eighth so they right behind us. It's not not that you know. So they would have been number one in the gold but we still had pretty much almost forty more medals than them total exactly a lot of bronze. That's the.

"olympic gold" Discussed on Diabetes Connections with Stacey Simms Type 1 Diabetes

"To another week of the show. I'm always so glad to have you here. You know, we aim to educate and Inspire about diabetes, with a focus on people who use an insulin. My son Benny was diagnosed right before he turned to back in 2006. My husband lives with type two diabetes. I don't have diabetes. I have a background in broadcasting. That's how you get the podcast. And what are the fun things about going to diabetes conferences is that you don't know who you're going to run into. And it turns out that just a few weeks before the postponed, Summer Olympics were to start, there was an Olympic gold medal swimmer at the recent friends for life conference. So great to be able to go back in person, finally kind of feeling our way through this. And hoping that way, we'll see what happens for the rest of this year, but hoping that we can get back to it. But once I saw that Gary Hall Jr. Was speaking to families attending friends for life. For the first time I knew I had to ask him to be dead. Show. So he graciously agreed he met me just a few hours later. We did this interview in person, you will hear me during the interview referred to how far he had to walk. And I mean it this conference is huge and I appreciate him basically meeting me at the farthest point from where he was and you'll also likely hear some background noise or some music if you were not familiar. Gary Hall Jr, represented the United States at swimming in Nineteen Ninety Six in two thousand, and two thousand four. It's really quite a family Legacy, his father, his grandfather, and his uncle all competed on the US Olympic Swim Team. Paul one silver in ninety-six, and then he was diagnosed in. Nineteen ninety nine with type one. His doctors told him he would never swim again. Competitively, but then in two thousand and Sydney, he became the fastest swimmer in the world. He broke his own record in 2004, and by the time, he retired from competitive swimming in 2008. He had one ten Olympic medals including five gold in Georgia. Current Olympics. There is a competitor from the US with type one. Charlotte Drury. She's not a swimmer. She's a trampoline gymnast and I talked about her during in the news last week or last episode hope and life on the show in the near future. I'm really interested to hear the difference because it's only been what a little bit more than twenty years since Gary Hall Jr. Was diagnosed and told, no way drop out of the Olympics home or do it. And Charlotte Drury was diagnosed and three weeks later returned to her full training. And she was diagnosed with this year. She was diagnosed with right before the trials, so it's a completely different world in these twenty two years, let's say in between those diagnosis. So I'm really interested to kind of talk to her in the near future, hopefully. All right, so let's get to it. But first diabetes, concoctions is brought to you by gevo keep open. And when you have diabetes and use insulin, low, blood sugar could happen when you don't expect it. That's why most of us carry fast-acting sugar and in the case of very low blood sugar, why wage Area. Emergency glucagon, there's a new Option called G bokek open. The first auto-injector to treat very low, blood sugar level, keep open is pre-mixed and ready to go with no visible needle in usability studies ninety-nine percent of people were able to give Jibo correctly, find out more, go 2, diabetes, connections.com and click on the Evoque logo. G books shouldn't be used in patients with pheochromocytoma or insulinoma. Visit G, Vogel risk. Gary, thank you so much for walking, the length of the convention center to talk to me today. I appreciate it. Yeah, I'm getting my steps in today. I feeling really good about it and I'm also having a lot of fun. Awesome, I'm glad to hear that. You spoke to the first timer families. This morning people who have are experiencing their first time, two friends for life. Why was it important to you, to speak to them? What were you talking to them? About the Antiquated expression is Shell Shocked know? I think it's PTSD, dog. When you go through a diagnosis, it hits your heart, it has your family members and loved ones really hard. And you have a lot more questions than answers and desperate is a word that comes to mind. When reflecting back on my own diagnosis, what makes this such a great convention, such a great organization and friends for life and and children with diabetes and everybody that attends you know is said sense of community here, that we're not in this alone that long others out there living in dealing with this condition in a similar way, that understand your struggles. And that's really all we want in some ways. It's just to be understood, you down in such an emotional traumatic, time and experience. And so for first-timers many of them newly diagnosed or the parent of a newly diagnosed child, it means off To me, cuz I haven't forgotten what it's like in that short time after a diagnosis and, and to be able to offer some support and encouragement and hope. Hopefully, hope to those makes me feel really happy, but when you were diagnosed, there was no one to lead you through it. There is no, had been no one with your experience or the experience you wanted to have and you have very famously shared, you know, what a difficult time. That was and how emotionally low it brought you. I don't mean to take you through the whole thing but may be curious to know where you found inspiration. How did you get through that time? When they said, sorry kid, you're done. Yeah, it took time, it took time. You know, there are stages of grief and waited my way through that muck and found in some ways fortunate that I was dead. Oh, top-level swimmer, you know, prior to the diagnosis because I had people reaching out to me, this is unusual, that's not the norm. And so I was able very early connect with JDRF children's Congress and children with diabetes, I was here in two thousand when this was a new thing. I'm going to ask about that. I heard there was some swimming, some kids. Yeah. Yeah and stands in the pool. You can count on that when it's here at the Coronado Springs Resort in Disney World but yeah lots of swimming. Lots of smiles. Good memories. I bet I bet but I mean not to dwell on the difficult but it's wonderful that they reached out to walk, right? And that is that is an unusual experience, but you still had to find a way to save yourself, my dreams still going to happen. Yeah, there was no certainty in that Pursuit. I didn't know.
