My guest today is Kamali Thompson. Kamali is a very dynamic and determined individual who not only trains as an elite athlete but is also in medical school. She very candidly talks about her training regimen and turning disappointment into success. A mere three weeks after learning she didn’t make the Olympic team she rallied and won the Division 1 Women’s Sabre championship. You’ll learn about the village it takes to create an elite athlete and the journey that Kamali took–and is still taking–to reach the pinnacle of our sport.
I had so much fun doing this interview. Even though it was long distance, Kamali’s energy and laughter made it a joy. Tune in now for an interview full of powerful insights into the double life of Kamali Thompson.
