Transcript for US Boxer Claressa Shields Discusses Rio Gold Medal
myself and 2014 is when I decided I would go, you know, make this quest for the olympic games and I had just won a world championships and I did that training on my own so to get that 2016 medal and get all the support I had was great and glad I did it and, you know. Maybe 2020, who knows. Oh, I mean we can only hope for 2020. I know part of your mission is to inspire others to help other, tell me how you're going to do that now with your two gold medals? Well, with the platform that I have now, I'm just going to, you know, tell people my story and tell them how my story involved god helping me get to where I got and how me being faithful to god helped me be where I am and train hard and put my body through all that hard work and still be able to smile about it afterwards and not be bitter about it. And just to those kids who I know who are like me and come from similar backgrounds to tell them they can make it. I want to find a few programs where I go and I speak and we actually have places for the kids to come. It's not like an after-school program. More of like a program to where they learn how to navigate their life out of school, you know what I mean. Oh, and you are the perfect role model for that claressa, we can only hope for 2020 in Tokyo with more of you. Thank you for joining us. Yeah, thank god for having me. Congratulations. Let's head outside to ginger. All right. I'm just over here hanging with Ayla from Pennsylvania. I wanted to show you something. Look at this video from Arizona, this is a dust storm that rolled through on there Sunday. A time lapse of it. One photographer at ax 15 -- wow, look at that. Oh, my goodness. Interesting look at that. Old dominion day. Have you noticed we're a little country and did a forecast for a lot of folks in the band and how their lives are intertwined. Roanoke is important to them, 83, harrisonburg, 80. Did you notice how much cooler it is? Isn't it fresh? One of the coolest mornings we've had in two weeks. Can you Ginger is referring to Te school weather in New York. We had showers and we had thunderstorms, and we even had strong thunderstorms last night between 34-bg -- 3:00 and 4:00 but pushing out over the cape, and we're winding down the raise I told you we're getting a little country. George and Amy, let's do this. Look at ginger out there. Noah Galloway, sharing how to live life with no excuses. We are kicking off our country music playlist week with barbecue and a huge performance from old dominion live. We'll be right back.
