Weightlifting Olympic gold medalist Tara Nott-Cunningham was the keynote speaker at the Game Changers in Sports Medicine Conference at WellSpan York Hospital, Medical Education Pavilion Lecture Hall in York. She spoke about her unpredictable path to the Olympic games and how she had many challenges to get there despite her athletic talent. The talk took place from 5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., and it was a very inspiring speech with a lot of different stories that engaged well with the audience. Nott-Cunningham also discussed how difficult it was for her to accomplish all of the things she did, but assured the listeners that anything is possible once the mind is put to something.
Nott-Cunningham is now retired from weightlifting but still is involved with the sport as an assistant coach and her husband is also an assistant coach for the Penn State wrestling team. She is the only athlete to have ever trained for three different sports at the Olympic Training Center, where she did soccer, weightlifting and gymnastics. She brought home the gold medal from the 2000 Sydney Olympic games and has two additional gold medals at the 1999 and 2003 Pan American Games.
The Texas native was the keynote speaker for this year’s Game Changers in Sports Medicine Conference in York, and there is no doubt that she will be invited back for a future event.
