Thank you so much to the USJF for their encouragement along this amazing journey! It has been a life long one and the USJF has been there the whole way. I even managed to attend almost all of the Shintaro Nakano clinics put on by the USJF in order to show my support. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed being able to assist in any way I could while I trained for the Olympics. I am excited to continue working with the Federation for years to come and deeply gratified by their immense showing of support while I chased my dreams.
Meeting president Obama.I thanked him for acknowledging @usajudo in his national address about the Olympics and in doing so raising awareness for our sport!
