Kara Goucher’s Silver Medal

​by kevin rutherford and nuun elite kara goucher

Over the past few months, thankfully several athletes have been retroactively awarded Olympic and World Championship medals. Each of these athletes dedicated years of hard work for a chance to earn that medal, and this is vindication of everything they’ve given to their sport. But for many, this moment brings mixed feelings.

A decade late, they are unable to share a moment of pride with their country on the podium. There are no tears of joy to take in what they just achieved, there is no prize money, and there are no sponsorship bonuses. And often, there is little communication from their sport's federation
