HOUSTON – On July 11, Olympian Anthony Watson visited Great Day Houston to discuss how he became the first athlete from Jamaica to compete in the sport of skeleton at the Olympics. Host Deborah Duncan speaks with Anthony about losing his sled just days before an Olympic qualifying run, how he trained when he could barely afford to pay for food or a place to live, and the mental toughness required to compete on the world stage.
