Are We Doing Enough To Support Our National Athletes?

Are We Doing Enough To Support Our National Athletes?

Amid budget cuts, and athletes getting dropped from the National Sports Council and its programs, we check in on whether enough support is being offered to our athletes, throughout their career, as well as in retirement. First, we try to get behind what's standing in our way, and then we close off by hearing from an athlete about what their experiences have been like.
