Summing up an Olympic Games with a list of names and numbers is an impossible task. From first to last there is a uniquely human story attached to each, and it seems unfair to tally the wins and losses as data alone – it diminishes their weight. So, while we take this year-end glimpse back at what athletes from CSI Calgary accomplished in 2018, let’s take a moment to remember their journeys as much as the score.
Kaetlyn Osmond: Olympic gold and a bronze, World Championship gold. Figure skater Osmond battled successive injuries leading up to her performance in PyeongChang, and her recovery was challenging. CSI Calgary experts helped craft a collaborative, science-based plan to help Osmond regain her winning potential before the Games. #Missionaccomplished
Alex Gough: Olympic bronze. After two decades of knocking at – and knocking down – the door, Alex Gough finally slid into Olympic history. Breaking through the German stranglehold in luge was monumental for Gough, in fact it took four Olympic Games for her to earn her Olympic bronze. The gruelling grind that Gough sustained makes the reward all the sweeter. #Canadiantrailblazer
