At the 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games, Canuck Emily Beers learns a few lessons from her American neighbours/neighbors.
I grew up believing—call it assuming, even—that the United States was the greatest country in the world. And I’m not even American.
As a child, I always thought of the United States as that friend you couldn’t seem to beat at anything.
I’m a proud Canadian; I really am. But there are two things I think we could learn from our neighbors that would make us more successful, as individuals and as a nation.
1. How to embrace athletics.
2. How to have self-belief.
