Don’t sell yourself short, compete clean!
Last month, I spent an inspiring few days up in the mountains of Whistler at a retreat led by the soulful athletes at Lululemon. The challenge at this retreat was less about the 12-mile mountain trail runs and more about self reflection and personal purpose. The challenge was clear: ‘we are going to have some big talk conversations versus the safe and boring small talk’.
Coming out of this retreat, I realized that we must start having the ‘big talk’ around competing clean in sport. We hold up a few doping (cheating) scapegoats that have been caught to demonstrate that we believe it is unacceptable. But have we really stepped back to think about why doping is bad? And why competing clean is the correct choice for our competition, for ourselves, and for the true spirit of sport? Just as important, what actions are we taking to create positive change? Clean sport an important initiative, both for me personally and for the industry at large. Here’s why.

We were now encircled by snow-capped mountains, en route to Machu Picchu.
