Oh sepp! i really don’t know where to start. i was nowhere near the elite level for bobsled when we met. from day one you were tough on me, expected more from me and challenged me to be better. you were honest, even when that meant telling me things i didn’t want to hear. then about half way through there was a shift, my skill level increased, i began to show promise and you made me acknowledge when i had done something well. i can’t count the number of times i have called you crying, frustrated and feeling like i would never achieve my dream. you never gave up me, you always answered the phone, you made me feel heard, you made this crazy goal of becoming an olympian seem possible. you helped me navigate the scary times of uncertainty, especially olympic year. you would say “if everything was already decided and easy you would be bored.” you are an amazing coach, by far one of the best i’ve ever had the privilege to work with. the last few days have been really hard. i have fought to change minds but i guess my opinion doesn’t matter enough. i’m not done yet though, you know me to well to know that i will never stop fighting for what i believe is right. thank you sepp and it has been an honor to work with you! i’m already jealous of whatever team gets you next! it has been an honor to know you and i hope you know i consider you family. ❤️ @seppplozza @elanameyerstaylor @teamusa @usabs @darrinsteele @ibsfsliding
