Open Heart, Open Mind
Clara Hughes is the only athlete in the world to win multiple medals in both the summer and winter Olympics. Unlike most professional athletes, who spent their whole lives training; Clara spent her teenage years drinking and using drugs as a way to escape the challenges of growing up in a home affected by alcoholism. In her long-awaited memoir, Hughes shares the journey of how she turned her life around at sixteen and how she survived a severe depression following her successful career as an athlete.
