Shalaya Kipp, Track and Field (Steeplechase)
Kipp, an Olympian in the steeplechase in 2012, wrote a long message on Instagram. She quoted teammate Emma Coburn and wrote, "Right now the focus needs to be on our communities. Do your part, stay home. Run alone. Run early (I'm trying to cut down forest foot traffic by running at 7am). Minimize the times you need to go to the grocery store (yep that means planning out meals in advance). Offer a helping hand (from a distance) if you can. Our landlord is in her mid 70s. We've let her know we're happy to run to the store for her if she needs. The Olympics are a symbol for peace and togetherness. The Olympics will bring us all back together next year." Kipp also posted a message on Twitter.
