What a journey…..thank you all for the love, support, and amazing messages. I never expected to be at this stage in my career, being a 2-time Olympian. No doubt I played my heart out with purpose and passion for not only my country but also for the Lord who gave me this talent to share with you all. I am so thankful and blessed to have been able to go through this journey with such a great group of women. We did some amazing things for basketball in Canada and that victory alone makes me so proud to be Canadian. Much Love and Blessings! #TeesJourney #GodGetsTheGlory #HisTimeNotMine #Rio2016
