Lea makes the USA Olympic Team
Friday was a HUGE day for for Lea Davison. And why was this day so important you might ask? USA Olympic Team selection. Mountain Biking is in the Olympics but it is only the Cross Country discipline, not downhill. A few years ago, going to the Olympics was a far fetched dream for Lea after she took a season off with major hip surgery. This was horrible at the time, but like many things in life, it proved to be a blessing in disguise. The time off gave her time to reflect on who she was and what she really wanted, it also gave her a much needed mental break from compteting. Fast forward to 2012 and Lea Davison was right up there in the mix for a spot on the USA Olympic Team. This day was the culmination of many years of hard work, determinations, tears of sadness, tears of joy....it was a journey that included many people her family, friends, Jojo, Coach, community, sponsors....sit back and enjoy one of the coolest moments I have ever witnessed!
(going to the Olympics has always been a lifelong dream for me, and it was so incredibly amazing to watch her dream come true in an afternoon....soooo incredible)
