Clara Hughes visits GISS


Clara Hughes’s return from the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta should have been a victory march.

She should have worn her two bronze cycling medals as a symbol of pride. Instead, they lay hidden in a drawer for nearly two years because despite placing third in the world, Hughes was overwhelmed by feelings of inadequacy. Unknown to her at the time, she was a victim of depression.

Hughes shared the story with students at Gananoque Intermediate and Secondary School (GISS) Tuesday of how she overcame that depression and went on to win four more Olympic medals. Twelve days into her Clara’s Big Ride for Bell Let’s Talk campaign, the six-time Olympic medalist is cycling across Canada as a campaign spokesman to encourage discussion and end the stigma associated with mental illness. One in five Canadians will suffer some form of mental illness at one point in their lives. The Bell-sponsored campaign will take the former Olympian on a 1200-kilometre cycling journey across the nation.  Read more
