“People going through these kind of struggles need support… For 17 years I struggled with my sexuality. When I was in college, I used to cry to my best friend because I didn’t feel like I belonged, like the guys on the team didn’t like me. My best friend told me to be yourself, go out there and work hard, and that’s what I did on the track because I had something to prove, I didn’t let that circumstance define who I was.” @KerronClement ⠀ On National Coming Out Day, we celebrated safe, inclusive spaces for LGBTQIA+ athletes and the power of sport for all at the LA City College Track. #BETRUE #UntilWeAllWin

“When people see me in the gym, I get a variety of responses. If someone knows someone that uses a prosthesis, they’ll tell me, ‘Hey,I know this person that just got an amputation. She's really struggling, but I’m gonna tell her she’ll be able to do this stuff.’ And that, hands down, makes it all worth it. Sport can show you how to be strong—not just physicality, but emotionally and mentally.” - @onelegtostandon #sportchangeseverything

“When I was in the recreational gymnastics classes with a bunch of other girls my age, it was discouraging for a while because I would look over and see them doing these amazing skills. You think to yourself, "What if I had started early? That could be me right now." ⠀ Because I started later, I’ve had to work a lot on positive affirmations. No matter how far I end up going with gymnastics, I just want to show everyone I’m willing to try. So, instead of “what if,” it’s more like, “what can happen now?” — Faith Moulton #sportchangeseverything
