"He insisted, so I said, let's play and see what happens. The bray was impressed with Chen's focus and self confidence. He knows what he needs, so the program's designed themselves quite easily with him. She says. When she saw him perform the program in the 2019 2020 season, I was blown away by his performance. I thought right away that this is going to be a magical moment at the world championships in Montreal. That didn't happen, but Chen had his moment with the program in Beijing instead. Sam channard worked with Chen, while he was in Montreal to bring out the performer in him, the fast and boisterous dance sequence at the end the audience and judge pleaser was largely Chennai's effort to show a different side of Chan since he knew Chen's athletic prowess would already be evident. He admits that he had to Google Chen's name at first, since, as a hip hop dancer he wasn't as familiar with the headliners in the skating world, I thought he really needed to push his artistic side, he says. When you're doing solo skating, there is so much focus on the athletic side of it. But that artistic side is a little left behind. I tried to see if he can dance and perform when he is getting ready to jump. So it would be easier to tell the story an easier to keep the audience involved in what he was trying to do on the ice. When skaters understand the blend of the two, this is the perfect recipe for gold. He says. Indeed, for Chen, the gold brings him full circle from his starred in skating as a child on the practice rink for the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, and from his disappointing 5th place finish at his first Olympics in 2018. Its validation for the long hours, his mother spent driving young Chen from their home and Salt Lake City to Los Angeles, a couple of times a month, where he started taking lessons when he was 12. My mom has been with me since the first day I stepped on the ice, and even now is right by my side, he told time. When I was 12, we didn't have the finances to afford flights, so driving was the only way to get me back and forth at the time. It finally paid off. With gold..

"Admits it's not real. Listen to subscribe everywhere you get podcasts. Nathan Chen, finally gets his Olympic gold by Alice park. It took two Olympic cycles 8 years of training and a pandemic, but U.S. figure skater Nathan Chen finally has his Olympic medal, and it's gold. The 22 year old Salt Lake City native skated the program of his life in Beijing's capital indoor stadium on Thursday afternoon to stand on top of the podium. Japan filled the remaining spots with Yuma kageyama earning silver and shoma uno the bronze. I just had a blast out there, said Chen, who skated to Elton John's rocket man. I'm so happy that program is so much fun to skate. It was Chan's gold to lose, just as it was heading into the games for years ago before he skated an uncharacteristically error filled short program that prevented him from cracking the top three after the free program. This time, it was different. Chen said a world record with his score in the short program on February 8th, easily taking the lead with a margin of almost 6 points. He lost none of that momentum entering the free program, effortlessly landing 5 quadruple jumps and cementing his reputation as one of the most accomplished men's figure skaters in history. Chen breaks what Japan's yuzuru hanyu was hoping to make a third consecutive Olympic title, skating and character as he generally does Han yu portrayed an iconic Japanese war hero from the 1500s, known as the God of War, despite being an 8th place after the short program, hanyu had a weapon that could have propelled him to the medal's podium, a quadruple axel. It's a jump that starts with a 12.5 base value to which skaters can add a high grade of execution points. On you came close to becoming the first skater to ever land the jump, almost, completing the four and a half rotations in the air, but he was just short and fell on the landing. Hanyu didn't regret making the attempt, however, no matter how hard no matter how unimaginable I want to push a little bit more for those who have expectations of me. He said afterward. That attempt was my pride. It's going to make me more complete. That's why I did it. Without the jump, however, and after falling on a different jump on you couldn't make up the points he needed to reach the podium. And ended up in fourth, but his teammates easily stepped in to claim their spots. The youngster of the team at 18 kageyama skated away with silver at his first Olympics, coached by his father, kageyama's solid technique and charisma earned him the second highest free program score of the event behind Chen, fitting for a skater who used to watch and study Chen's programs on YouTube. He landed four quadruple jumps, and made a statement to the world that if Chen and Han you are the present, he's the future.

"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..

"olympic gold" Discussed on The Pat McAfee Show 2.0
"You said have moment there to say. Thanks to the hawks. And i hope kraus's on already and now he's naive minute until he'll be joining so honestly i thought he was potentially going to be on and then i heard he wasn't on so a golf clap became a standing ovation inch potentially as it should have been. You're one hundred percent right joining us now. Ladies and gentlemen out of oregon just became a olympic gold medalist any world holder breaking his own damn record guy who throws sixteen pound rocks further than any human in the history of throwing sixteen pound rocks which i do believe began as soon as they found a rock that weighed sixteen pounds and has to be thousands and thousands of years. The greatest of all time. United states of america gold medal winner at the olympics. The pass right tracks ask on man now much. Thanks for having me. Hey crosser quick question all right you might be the most explosive human to ever walk earth with the ability to swallow that thing further than ever the first time you broke her own record. You had a hat in your eyes. You couldn't even see anything. Did you ever play football. Was it always shotput. I know it's in the family shop puddings in the family but was that the only thing you ever focus on track and field because it looks like you could have done whatever the hell you want it. Yes so. I played football growing up. I was actually a quarterback. I was tall and skinny and definitely not bill like linemen when i was playing football and so i played defensive back free safety and cornerback on defense and then. Qb on offense. And then after. I really like around freshman year high school. I quit playing football folks on fall basketball I was planned fall. Basketball football Basketball is really one of my main sports. All through high school. I was i was brace housing basketball conference player of the year as junior and then focus on track when i went to college At the texas. What was the The experience like when you got there to the olympics. I guess not having really fans there like was there like any extra anxiety or nerve getting their ended. It feel like okay. Hey this is. This is the big in the world. Yes oh definitely had a different feel at this olympics than my past world champs or olympics. i say the biggest thing with this one is just. It was very stressful and the stress for me to deal with this stuff that i can't control that stuff. You wanna let go and not let it kinda way on you. But when i mean it was no one's fault it's just the status of the world right now is with cova just every morning takeover tests and you just pray. Your phone didn't go off that your europe out if you kkob it even if you're symptomatic even if you're vaccinated you're out of the games in you're locked in hotel room for seven days. So that was the stressful part every morning. Cova tests like any notification. Like you didn't wanna look at your phone at all For any athlete. That's the absolute worst thing if you go out there and compete and have the worst day your life at the olympics that sucks but at least that's on you like that was under your control so the number one thing. I wouldn't wish on any athlete. Is that text saying. Hey you're you're getting locked down though. That was that was the most stressful part of this olympics. It as far as fans not being there in the stands being Empty it's the still the olympics I meet it's if you can't get off for the olympics the and even without fans like you might want to reevaluate what sport. You're okay so let's talk about the waking up and getting the dreaded cova test every morning and then potentially getting a text that says all of your hard work is all for not actually. You're getting locked down in a hotel for seven days. All by yourself an flown home and everything you've just done for five years now is offering a shot putting world and forgive for not knowing enough about this. You said world championships in previous olympics. Is there a week to week league where you can dominate. Folks is that how does it work and is the olympics is basically the pinnacle. That's a super bowl of of everything you do. Yeah so olympics is is definitely like are super bowl. We have what we call majors so you have. Every usually every year is a world championship year and every four years olympics. And so the major for this year was the olympics next major world championships and then inbetween we is. What is the diamond league. And so that's around the world so before two or eight competitions depending on the year depending on the event like this your shot has four qualifier for the diamond point dimly file based on a points race. And so that's every year we have a dime late final and you kind of still in with meets in between so it might be some lower level pro meets like grand prix style or don couple. Says you're right is through at the university arkansas. Both indoors and outdoors. You beat everybody all these things. All the time. I i do have asked the way the commentators were speaking though when you came up early ladies and gentlemen. The show is about the fucking. Is that a lot of pressure. I assume it is at all these events. You're the guy especially now you've broken your own record like three times and i'm only saying this because it seems to happen in the olympics in these types of sports phelps was like every time he got race. He's gotta win. Use aim boat. We talked to him every time he's in a race. He asked win simone biles anytime she got into an inventor did anything the expectations were gonna win. I think and i don't know enough about you or shot pudding but you are in that same exact vein whenever it comes to shop putting if the commentators were speaking in the proper fashion. Do you know that does that propel you to work harder. Is there any thoughts about the whole. Like hey i am tired of carrying shotput right. And that's how they were talking like. Hey this guy is setting the standard four-shot pudding. Do you think about that or do you try to block all that shit out. I mean i try to block most of it out the way i approach it is i mean anytime. I'm going to compete. I can control what i do and how well i do it. I can't control what the other guys throw So my main focus is throw as far as i can. And so i feel like i actually have less stress on myself now Deny did priroda record. Because before i knew i could throw the world record. I knew it was possible but it was like okay. I know i can do it now. Let's try to make it happen. And i would get a little bit tight. I think there was at least six different competitions where i was expecting to rake the ro record going into and it just didn't happen like i have set myself up really well. I'm gonna give place to do it and it just didn't quite let it happen so now that i have the world record it's like i'm just competing myself which is exactly where i wanna be. I wanna walk out there in. Throw a personal best and say on the. I've ever been personally today. I'm better than i was yesterday. And hopefully tomorrow will be better than this but that kind of takes the stress off. Because i'm not worrying about the other guys. Throw if i go out there and throw the best i've ever done i. I can't be disappointed with that. So i'm worried about myself and i got compete and i'd say the pressures actually less now that i'm now there have to record because i'm not trying to chase anyone. I'm just trying to change myself and that's awesome. That's a great way to look at it. I hope you maintain that for the rest of your life as you can..

"Addison It's never just about wins losses when it comes to me it's about how consistent you can be in how he played defense because the win are growing if you if you keep those no. 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. I guess when the league starts how will that consistently how would that consistency translate over. How.

I i called him. Turkey right is that's where he's from right. Big turk cherkesian. Steve turkey things. I'm what you know. Are the box that one ear. Because i'll this part two. 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..

I emptied jonah gotti enact guy over there that guy stuck always with the professor john guy the king of detroit massive data analyzing the of his own the least hype machine in best podcasting. 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.

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.
