I want to wish two time Olympic Gold Medalist in Track and Field Sanya Richards Ross much success in her career and life in general. I met her for the first time at an Essence reception for the launching of their year long education series Mission Critical: Education First (see my article on it here), where she spoke about The Sanya Richards Fast Track Program that she began in her hometown Jamaica. Mrs. Richards Ross’ winning smile and personality was in full effect that night (the woman is friendly, happy, passionate, and gorgeous), where I got to ask the real life NFL wife what she thinks of the TV series The Game.
In case you aren’t aware of this hot show, The Game is all about the lives of professional football players and the women who helped make them the successful ballers they are. So, what does Sanya think of it? “I’ve watched it a few times, it’s entertaining!” she says. But is it true to life? “Somewhat, except for all the drama.” Good to know. She has said in a promotional video for BP released last year about how blessed she is to be married to a professional athlete who understands the rigorous lifestyle and highs and lows of the sports industry. (Plus they were sweethearts since high school!) Sanya Richards Ross is currently training for the 2012 Olympics in London. I just Tweeted her good luck, but she won’t need it because she brings her champion spirit everywhere!
