Sanya Richards-Ross: "Time" of Her Life

Updated: Thursday, July 18 2013, 01:39 PM CDT

In track and field, more so than any other field, timing is everything.

And last summer in London, Sanya Richards-Ross was faster than every other woman in the world.

"How amazing is that?," exclaimed the 2012 400 meter Olympic champion. "Since that day, every time I do something I'm always introduced as the Olympic champion and it just makes me feel like I really, really did it."

But just a month after winning her first individual Olympic gold, Sanya had surgery to repair a lingering toe problem. Recovery was supposed to take 6-8 weeks. Nearly a year later, Sanya still is not right.

"Even now, just walking sometimes is painful," admitted Richards-Ross.

The 400 meter Olympic final was her biggest race last summer. She was healthy. She won.

At June's U.S. Outdoor Championships, Sanya's biggest race this summer, she was not healthy. She finished sixth.

"I know that God is orchestrating my life," said Sanya. "So I'm very very grateful that last season I was healthy and I was able to accomplish the goal I've wanted since I was nine years old."

As Richards-Ross tries to get back to 100 percent, that is not the only "rehab" she's doing this summer.

"It's almost like family therapy," Richards-Ross joked when asked about her new reality show.

Next Thursday, "Sanya's Glam and Gold", premieres on We TV.

"I actually think I'm going to be just as nervous as I was in London at the start line," admitted Sanya. "You really get used to all the cameras and eventually just become yourself. You'll say something and look back and go 'uh oh!"

But the true reality is: If her injury does not improve, the show might be Sanya's final performance of 2013.

"When I walked off the track at nationals and I finished sixth, I thought 'Oh my God, I love what I do," recalled Sanya. "I want to come back and I want to win this."

The next Olympiad is still more than 1,100 days away. "I will be ready when it counts again," proclaimed Richards-Ross.

Timing is everything on the track.
