It has been a year since former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison for abusing more than 150 girls. But Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman is still coming to terms with the sexual abuse she experienced as a teenager.
Lindsey Jacobellis is the perfect example of why you shouldn’t give up. The pro snowboarder, a competitor at this year’s Winter Olympics, admits she “wasn’t really good a snowboarding” when she first took up the sport at age 10, after her big brother Ben introduced her to it. Instead, Jacobellis spent years honing her skills in Stratton, Vermont, and entered her first X Games competition at 15 years old.
