Jamaican-American Sanya Ricard Ross Reveals Abortion Before Beijing Olympics

Jamaican-American runner Sanya Richard Ross, revealed in her new memoir, “Chasing Grace: What the Quarter Mile Has Taught Me About God and Life” that she got an abortion the day before she flew to Beijing to compete in the Olympics!

“Everything I ever wanted seemed to be within reach,” SRR wrote … “The culmination of a lifetime of work was right before me.”

“In that moment, it seemed like no choice at all. The debate of when life begins swirled through my head, and the veil of a child out of wedlock at the prime of my career seemed unbearable. What would my sponsors, my family, my church, and my fans think of me?”

Sanya competed in the 400m race that year — and won the bronze medal. However, she won gold as part of the 4×400 relay team.
