The Shakeout Podcast: The Rundown for the week in review of February 10

This week we start by paying tribute to Megan Brown in light of the recent Globe and Mail article detailing the years of abuse she suffered in Guelph. Megan and the others who came froward in the article demonstrated great bravery, and we thank them.

Members of the athletics community are reminded that they can reach out to the Athletics Canada independent Commissioner’s Office, a third-party Safe Sport mechanism, to file complaints. Access the form HERE.
