Overcoming Life’s Hurdles to Achieve Olympic Size Success with Sarah Wells and Sam Effah

Sarah and Sam are Team Canada teammates who have travelled the world competing at international competitions. It hasn’t been an easy road, as both of these incredible athletes have experienced near career-ending injuries. Sarah was sidelined with an injury the year of her first Olympic Games and made a comeback within six months to compete and finish as an Olympic semi-finalist. Sam was diagnosed with major labral tears in both hips, and fought his way back from this near career-ending injury to qualify for the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Join us as these two discuss Amazing Race Canada, their work in social good, and the power of believing in yourself to overcome any challenge.
