Tribute To Pat Summit From Exercise For Balance
A Warm Goodbye To Pat From Exercise For Balance
By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via www.exerciseforbalance.com
Pat summer was one of the most inspiring and most wonderful people in sports history. Today we learned that Pat Summitt, a Hall of Fame, former Coach of the Year and the winningest coach in NCAA basketball history, died at 64 after a battle with early onset dementia. Summitt, who coached the University of Tennessee Lady Volunteers for 38 seasons and won 8 national titles along with 1,098 wins and only about 200 losses battled dementia with grace and dignity. Summitt was diagnosed with early onset dementia in 2011 and her declining health forced her to step down from her position a year later. During her illustrious career as a coach, she served as one of the great ambassadors of women’s basketball and a dear mentor to thousands of women athletes across the globe. As a player, Summit won the silver medal with Team USA at the Montreal Olympics in 1976. In 2012, Summit was the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPY Awards. Not only will it be hard to ever come near matching her winning record, it will be impossible to match her drive, work ethic and positive influence she had on thousands of individuals who came in contact with her. Even recently, Summit encouraged other individuals with Alzheimer’s to not be afraid of it. We at Exercise For Balance want to acknowledge the greatness of Pat Summit and celebrate her life and achievements. We would also like to continue to help older adults who struggle with Alzheimer’s, dementia or any other illness that contributes to problems with balance to improve their steadiness and continue with as active a life as possible through participating in fitness programs that include senior balance exercises.
