The following is an excerpt from an ESPN article titled How WWE superstar Becky Lynch found a way to top 2019 with one announcement—and give back to Special Olympics.
ESPN: What does it mean to you to share your fitness expertise with Special Olympics athletes during these unprecedented times?
Becky Lynch: Fitness is something that is such an important part of my life, and I think it's so good for anybody and everybody just mentally, physically and community-wise. It's so important for them to keep up their fitness. And this was an easy way to do it. And of course, then the COVID-19 hit, and it's just been perfect that these [School of Strength] videos are available now. So hopefully once all of this subsides, those athletes will be able to go back to it strong as ever without skipping a beat.
