Video: Jess Schipper Talks MND and Me, Upcoming Olympic Year

Today, I sat down with Australian 5-time World Champion and four-time Olympic medalist Jess Schipper from Australia. We spoke about her latest charitable effort with the MND and Me Foundation (which supports MND, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease), as well as her reactions to her World Championship performance and what she’s looking at during the season ahead. For more information on how to help MND and Me, visit Jess’ official donation page here.
