I would like to thank the USATF Foundation for awarding the Carrie Tollefson Training Camp with the Youth Programs Grant. It has been a dream of mine to host a camp for youth and give back to the sport I love. Being a 2004 Olympian gave me so much to share with kids about hard work, dedication, and the joy of victory. Not making the 2008 team has made me realize a more important message to be sent. It is great to be a champion, and that is what we all strive to be, but what we do with disappointment and how we overcome, and push through tough times, is what really defines a champion.
