Meaghan Mikkelson’s journey worth everything and more

By Georgia Sapounas
Digital Manager, Canadian Olympic Committee

Meaghan Mikkelson had the incredible experience of winning gold in Vancouver and would like nothing more than to experience it again.

“People talk a lot about the things that they sacrifice in their lives to be successful in whatever it is that they do but I don’t see it as a sacrifice.  I see it as being very lucky to be doing what I’m doing.  The feelings that you get from being awarded with an Olympic gold medal in comparison to the things that you have to give up is miniscule.” – Meaghan Mikkelson
