At the tender age of 23 we lost a wonderful person and a talented athlete! Yesterday marked one year since her passing. I thought that in memory of Carla Swart, I would share this video of her on training camp with Team HTC – Highroad at the end of 2010.
Carla was a vivacious, talented and inspirational young women! We can all learn from her determination, love of life and cycling.
In 2012, an Olympic year, a very special year for athletes all around the world, I think it appropriate to take inspiration from Carla and her vest for life!
“I’d like to dream big and make it happen!”
Rest in Peace Carla Swart!
