Tara Kirk offers her view of the world
Tara Kirk has posted on her wcsn.com blog in the wake of Jessica Hardy's decision to withdraw from the U.S. Olympics swim team -- and USA Swimming's decision not to add another swimmer (Kirk) to the team.
Here is part of what she had to say:
I’m frustrated and disillusioned. But most of all, I am saddened that the people and organizations that I gave a huge part of my life to couldn’t bring themselves to do the right thing. To make this situation right.
Kirk also delivers this message to the swim hierarchy:
I’m not sure what I can do for myself. But I think that it is vitally important to make sure that something like this doesn’t happen again. I don’t think that change can occur without the acknowledgement that mistakes happened. But since no mistakes are being admitted to, that means that my fight is not over.
