This summer was filled with endless possibilities that injected new energy and new life into me. But what really inspired me was the opportunity that sport has given me. I remember being a child at 8 years old, running in the park with my friends playing basketball, soccer and football. I had my fair share of memories of sport. Coming from urban areas plagued by poverty, drugs and gang violence; Sport is a gateway allowing young people to escape their realities. I share an inner story of “Sport changes everything. Sport has given me something to look forward to in my life and I always knew it would be my job to pass it on to the next generation of young people. In Toronto, we have a divine sports culture, with all due respect to our loyal fans!
