L&L Sports Podcast Ep.17 - with Arielle Sanders, Athlete and Advocate
Arielle Sanders, athlete and advocate, talks with Matt O'Keefe on Episode 17 of the Loud And Live Podcast. Arielle and Matt initially met in July at the "Future of CrossFit" summit in Colorado. Seeking to further the discussion, we invited Arielle on to share her story as a rising athlete,sponsored by Fatso Peanut Butter, and her perspective on race in the sport. "I want to see more people of color involved in CrossFit, from the Games level, to HQ, to affiliate owners. I know it's really important, if someone is in a position of power, and someone has this experience [as a person of color], they should be working together to solve problems. You can't design systems for people based on what you think they need. You have to co-create to find out: what is the problem and how we move forward. I will continue to advocate for myself and for black people and for people of color, but if the people in power aren't doing anything with the things that the marginalized are saying or working with them to make a change, nothings is going to change. I don't have the answers but I'm willing to work with people to get there." - Arielle Sanders
