Experience is certainly a cause of stress, but it is necessary. Marianne St-Gelais, the third-level Olympic medalist, released her biography in Montreal on Monday, in which she publicly introduced almost all aspects of her life.
It has been more than two years since she hit the ball for the last time in the short track speed skating competition. This is also an opportunity to review her career and take a permanent step.
“There are multiple goals behind the biographical resume. This is explained by his two silver medal winners at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. I need to turn a page on sports. We have talked a lot. In recent years, it has taken up A lot of space. It seems that this is a summary method, listing the best and worst moves, what I learned and why it makes room for the next woman.”
“I think this is very important and necessary for me, just to be myself and really externalize certain things. This is a way of thanking the athlete and seeing what she has brought me.”
The readership of this biography is very wide, because it covers several topics that are both important and different, such as sports, family, sex, fame and mental health.
In addition to the success and failure in sports, this 30-year-old woman from Roberwell found herself and discussed the crises of her late adolescence and the emotional dependence that marked her life, as well as the learning that made her a woman. It is in full bloom today.
“I not only praise myself. I did a lot of bad things there. That’s great stuff. Therefore, I long to turn a page in the first 30 years of my life.”
Although she thinks she has done a lot of work to become a strong and independent woman, she does not wear rose-colored glasses: this will be a constant struggle. However, she can count on the precious help of her companion Elie.
“I think I did a great job. I think that for me, since I am returning to this addiction, it will be a daily job. But now I have benchmarks and tools to prevent this from happening again. Happened. And I have a life partner who can help me keep that woman.”
The biography published by KOÉditions is titled “Marian Saint Glace’s Olympic Life Is Not Always Like This”, and the book will be available for sale in bookstores from Wednesday.
