From Clara Hughes, one of Canada’s most decorated Olympians, and an MEC Ambassador, comes a life-affirming story of struggle with depression. Inspired by gold medal speed skater Gaétan Boucher in the 1988 Calgary Olympics, Clara channeled her youthful anger and frustration into raw ambition. Competing in speed skating and cycling, by 2010, she became a 6-time Olympic medalist. After more than a decade in the world of professional sport, Clara began to realize that the physical extremes, emotional setbacks, and continued stress, were masking a severe depression. After retiring from competition, she emerged as an advocate for social causes in Canada and around the world. Told with honesty and passion, Open Heart, Open Mind is Clara’s personal journey through physical and mental pain to a life where love and understanding can thrive.
