Host Bob Sirott is joined by three-time Olympic gold medal swimmer Carrie Bates. Carrie talks about the pressure that’s put on Olympians to be successful and Simone Biles withdrawing from the team event to focus on her mental health.
Carrie is also an Outreach Manager for Hazelden Betty Ford. Her career in the treatment field began in 2013, after her own personal battle with addiction. Prior to that, she spent the better part of her sales and marketing career at Nike, Inc. after her own successful athletic career as a three-time Olympic Gold Medalist. Carrie got sober in 2012 and has dedicated her life’s work to helping others find treatment and recovery.
