As the year winds down, here is a #throwback of @mayataughtme on her trip to the Côte d'Ivoire this last summer for Team Canada! It is always important to take time and reflect on all of the great things you've accomplished this year so that you can prepare yourself for all the amazing things you're going to do next year 💪🏾✨

Once upon a time, Benjamin Williams @big_ben_49 was a young kid in Jamaica who had the dream of becoming a track and field star. Back then, long jump was his thing. Now, he is a national sprinter and is part of the national relay pool. This year he anchored the men's 4x100m relay team to a silver medal in the Francophone Games in Ivory Coast on July 28, 2017. The Francophone Games were first launched in 1989 in Casablanca and Rabat, Morocco, and are a combination of sporting and cultural events for nations where French is the main language or where significant parts of the population use French as the first language. Congrats on this exciting win, Ben!
.
.
So how did he get to where he is today? For one thing, Ben doesn’t shy away from hard work. He trains 5-6 days per week 2x per day-- Gym workouts in the mornings and track workouts in the evenings including lactic work, speed intensity, speed endurance, and speed/power conversion. A key aspect of his training is developing his ability to imagine and visualize his process to mentally prepare for competitions, which reflects his motto, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)."
.
.
Ben worked with Craig prior to nationals and we are looking forward to seeing him back in the clinic again. He says, “I try to incorporate recovery every day into my training program. The earlier I recover the better I am able to handle the next day’s training.” His ultimate achievement is not only to represent Canada in a major international competition but also run a sub 10 seconds in the 100m to be a world class sprinter!

Zach and Emily both pick up hardware from the Francophone Games! For Emily, this was her third gold medal weekend in a row on the tour. Zach went 4-1 losing only to Swiss in a tight quarter final. They now take part in the summer training camp at home in Montreal for three weeks. Zach then goes to Budapest Hungary for the Senior World Championships while Emily continues her preparation for the Junior World Championships later in October. #TeamUCJC #MedalAlert #Judo #MedalHaul #Ontario #TeamCanada #Siblings #JudoCanada #Durham #FrancophoneGames #JudoQuebec

Heading back to Canada tomorrow! 🇨🇦 I've had some amazing experiences here in Abidjan and I have met so many wonderful people during the Francophone Games. So proud to be bringing a silver medal home 💗🥈 #jeuxdelafrancophonie #francophonegames #abidjan #canada #cotedivoire #hammerthrow #trackandfield

C'est un privilège de pouvoir rentrer à la maison avec une médaille des #JeuxDeLaFrancophonie pour une deuxième fois dans ma carrière. Au delà des résultats de la course, ce sont les moments passés en équipe à créer des souvenirs inoubliables, et les découvertes et rencontres que nous avons faits qui sont les plus chers pour moi! *** *** It's truly a privilege to bring home a medal from the Francophone Games for a second time in my cycling career. What's even more special to me though are the moments that I got to spend with my Team Quebec teammates making unforgettable memories, a plethora of discoveries and meeting some wonderful people. #Abidjan #solidaritédiversitéexcellencen #cyclingmedal #medal #FrancophoneGames #cyclinglife #cycling #cyclisme #cyclistlife #CoteDIvoire #fromwhereiride

I discover this young canadian athlete Natassha Mc Donald at the 2017 Francophonie Games 400m final a few days ago. Of course with her 52s 34 lap she still has work to do but her elegance reminds me my "forever" favorite Marie-Joe Perec. I'm sure we will hear about her at the London IAAF World Championships in August and I hope to see her run together with the french Deborah Sananes #francophonegames #natasshamcdonald #canada #athlete #canadianracer #iaafworldchampionships2017 #athletisme #london2017 @tashaamcd
