  • The struggle for sport | CBC Sports
    Faculty of Physical Education and Health called Game Misconduct Violence Abuse and Young Athletes raises a lot of questions about sport and where it s heading these days Against a backdrop where the professional role models of fun and games are proving themselves to be dopers and cheaters on myriad levels and where the best and brightest stars are frequently injured the foundation values of sport are under siege Yes we are watching more sport on TV and consuming it across multi platforms but are we engaging in sport on an active level doing it for the right reasons and in the proper way Physical inactivity causes 50 000 deaths in Canada per year says Dr Doug Richards the team physician for the U of T Varsity Blues and director of the university s sport medicine clinic Sport and physical activity should be healthy There are risks yes but sport needs to make games safer If I have one more parent come to me and tell me their concussed son or daughter is ready to play too soon I m going to lose it Who is sport for and why should it matter Isn t it about honest competition between rivals at the height of their powers and enjoying what the famed hockey goaltender Ken Dryden once called the magic of play Isn t sport supposed to be at least partly about fun and personal growth Given the epidemic corruption and violence in the current sporting environment there s cause for concern Often these days the magnitude of victory is determined by the extent to which your opponent is incapacitated says Richards Dr Gretchen Kerr focuses her research on the psychological health of young people and child maltreatment in sport She also serves as the harassment officer for Gymnastics Canada Why did we banish corporal punishment in schools decades ago but allow it to continue in sport says Kerr There is no national and universal regulatory body for coaching Imagine any other profession that deals with children not having such a body Worrisome is the extent to which young and talented athletes in this country are being exploited The focus is on high performance and at an incredibly early age too many are being treated as property to be owned and traded There is now a high risk of injury in children s sport and the dropout rate of gifted athletes is climbing Sport for the sake of sport seems to be struggling to survive End of Story Content Back to accessibility links Story Social Media Share Tools Report Typo Send Feedback End of Story Social Media Prev Germany s Prinz of players CBC Sports Weekend is our field of play Next About the Author Scott Russell Scott brings vast experience passion and knowledge to his role as host of CBC s Sports Weekend on CBC A 20 year CBC Sports veteran Russell has covered nine Olympic Games and co hosted Olympic Morning for Beijing 2008 The Olympic Games The

    as I can remember the 200 metre individual medley has been my best event The 200 IM was the first event I ever won at the Canadian championships the event that got me into an Olympic final and my first individual international medal That s why people are so surprised that I ve decided not to swim it at the Olympics this summer Posted Tuesday April 24 2012 07 03 PM Julia Wilkinson Randy Starkman was the athletes voice Just as I was about to get in the pool on Tuesday afternoon I heard the sad news that Toronto Star journalist Randy Starkman had died In a media world where journalists sometimes like to blur the facts and turn their backs on athletes when we fail Randy stood alone When people ask me why I want to be a journalist when I retire from swimming I say it s because someone needs to stand up for the athletes Someone needs to be their voice But if all journalists were like Randy I guess I never would ve had that as my answer because he was our voice Posted Tuesday April 17 2012 12 37 AM Julia Wilkinson Ecstasy and agony at Olympic swim trials The Canadian Olympic trials are unlike any other swim meet I ve ever competed in My teammate Olympic bronze medalist Ryan Cochrane firmly believes that the trials are way more stressful for swimmers than the actual Olympic Games themselves For me all the hours in the pool and weight room coupled with the amount of work I have done on my mental fortitude came to fruition last week I won three events the 100 metre backstroke 200 IM and 100 freestyle and finished my week with a bronze in the 200 backstroke This was not the case for everyone however Posted Tuesday April 10 2012 10 57 AM Julia Wilkinson Breaking the 1 minute barrier Every year I spend countless hours training but I am only in peak race preparation maybe twice every season That is why after four long years of waiting it was so sweet to finally break the one minute barrier in the 100 metre backstroke en route to qualifying for my second Olympic team Posted Friday March 30 2012 10 30 AM Julia Wilkinson Canadian Olympic Swimming Trials just days away I woke up with a few more butterflies in my stomach this week There s only a few more days to wait until my first race at the Canadian Olympic Swimming Trials in Montreal the 100 metre backstroke Posted Friday March 23 2012 09 44 AM Julia Wilkinson Why I almost quit swimming and why I didn t As the Canadian Olympic swimming trials draw closer I find myself reminiscing more and more about the 2008 Games in Beijing I was so excited so naïve I think I believed that the skies would open up and my life would all fall into place now that I was going to the Olympics

  • My response to a journalistic slap in the face | CBC Sports
    that anything short of the podium simply isn t good I want to win a medal for Canada in London I will probably feel incredibly unfulfilled for a long long time if I fail next year But does that mean I m not proud of my top 10 finishes Absolutely not How many people can say they are 10th best in the world at anything Not many If someone told my mom an eighth grade teacher that she was the 10th best English teacher in the world our family would probably be pretty stoked So why is fourth fifth or eighth such a failure in our profession Sacrifice That being said I hope no one jumps on me at this moment and accuses me of exemplifying the Canadian attitude that many athletes are accused of having Just because we re not throwing ourselves from hotel windows when we don t win medals some people believe we re complacent We re trained to tell the media something positive after a bad race but that doesn t mean that on the inside our hearts aren t breaking when we come up short And I ll tell you why it s because we give everything we have to this sport In a country where the No 1 priority seems to be education Canadian athletes must choose to put their university degrees on hold to train for the Olympics putting themselves further and further behind their peers when it comes to their ability to get a job make money and support themselves comfortably in the future With few well established national training centres we must move far away from our families and friends to train I only go home to Ontario to see my family twice every year and Christmas flights cost well into the 1 000 range for only a few days of family time We go through painful injuries and possible career ending surgeries You know that feeling when you re just too sore and tired to get out of bed in the morning We feel that every day But I m not complaining I love my life and when my coach tells me that I might bleed a little from my eyes at a workout that day I dive in headfirst literally People need to know how much we do sacrifice so that everyone understands that we want these medals just as much as the Americans Brazilians or Kenyans But being the best in the world is a really hard thing to do That s why it s such an amazing feat Money well spent One of the most discouraging comments I ve heard is Why are we wasting our tax dollars on athletes who can t bring home medals Well here s a theory when we support our athletes they become more visible in the media Kids then see the athletes and idolize them How many kids decided to play hockey because they wanted to be like Wayne Gretzky And

  • Cyclist Whitten hears London calling
    next two years Improve she must Her performances on the World Cup circuit and all those medals mean she is no longer the underdog but a target for others And thanks to all the media attention there will be enormous expectations from the Canadian public as she progresses towards her ultimate objective the London Olympics in 2012 Battled exhaustion A somewhat shy individual who is only now becoming comfortable conducting interviews Whitten is coming to grips with the sudden recognition Yeah I think it did take a while to adjust to it especially because I spent so many years in cross country skiing not really feeling that I might ever get to that world class level she said So it has been really exciting to come to the realization that s where I am in cycling and I am one of the best in the world and a contender for a medal in any event Part of the excitement has been hearing from old friends who have followed her progress through the media and have contacted her on Facebook Many she said who thought she was crazy in high school because she was so involved with cross country skiing have sent congratulatory messages Along with other members of the Canadian national track cycling team Whitten is based in Los Angeles for the winter and has put her University of Alberta doctoral studies temporarily on hold while she prepares for the 2012 Olympics For the first couple of weeks in Southern California she battled exhaustion and rode her bike sparingly After racing at the UCI world road championships in Melbourne she finished seventh in the time trial and 15th in the road race she flew to Delhi for the Commonwealth Games and the travel obviously took its toll I knew my preparation for the Commonwealth Games was not ideal with the road worlds basically four days before she said And so I wasn t sure how my body would respond I couldn t put too many expectations on myself I just had to go there and race I was satisfied with the points race bronze I know I am the world champion in that event but for the points race you need two things you need endurance and you need really top end speed And I knew I hadn t been working on my speed as much Road to London goes through L A A week of high altitude training in Big Bear Calif about two hours north of L A launched her 2011 track training program before she headed to Melbourne Australia for the UCI World Cup event there in early December She earned the silver medal in the omnium event two days after contributing to Canada s fourth place finish in the women s team pursuit She followed that up with another omnium silver at the World Cup race in Cali Colombia on Dec 17 For the next two years her focus will be on the omnium and team
