IMG Speakers Presents Olympic Gold Medalist Kayla Harrison

Congratulations to Kayla Harrison who took home a gold medal in Judo at the London 2012 Olympic games.  Born in Middletown, Ohio, Harrison took up judo at the age of six and is the only American gold medalist in the sport.

The coveted gold medal caps an extraordinary journey for Harrison, who in 2007 put her former coach behind bars for sexually abusing her as a teen. Putting triumph over tragedy, she went public with her ordeal in 2011.  “Since I’ve come out with my story, the reaction has been nothing but overwhelmingly kind. Now I’m going to have a platform to be able to help people”, says Harrison.

Kayla Harrison is available for speaking engagements and appearances through IMG Speakers.
