Professional athletes are sometimes seen as invincible, indestructible, or larger than life. While armchair fans may look at fame and fortune as something to envy, it shouldn’t be confused with happiness or well-being. Those are two different conversations.
In the latest TSN Original feature, two-time Olympic gold medalist Rosie MacLennan opens up about her ongoing battle with anxiety. While many Canadians remember the thrill of watching Rosie take top spot on the trampoline podium during London 2012, and then again at Rio 2016, there’s a lot of time and experience in between that we don’t get to see.
In partnership with Team Canada, TSN helps to tell Rosie’s story through the latest TSN Original.
Wednesday marks the 10th Bell, Let’s Talk Day and Canadians are rallying all across the country. Rosie’s story is one of many battles with mental illness, and it may be happening in places you wouldn’t think.
Get involved in the conversation, and help us battle the stigma of mental illness together.
