This is speech is about Dotsie Basuch’s journey in choosing life over death. She focuses on channeling the critical components of her personality that were consumed by a debilitating eating disorder, sharing how she used her faith and strong will to become an Olympic champion.
"When I invited Dotsie to be a speaker at the 2012 Renfrew Center Foundation Conference for Professionals on the topic of exercise and eating disorders, she was training for her Olympic debut in the Team Pursuit. It is a testament to her unassuming poise and ardent candor that nothing changed in her talk once the silver medal graced her neck, other than her humble acknowledgement of Olympic success. Perhaps this is because humility and courage informed, if not saved, her life years prior as she recovered from the “sole pursuit” of thinness and perfection in a ten-year battle with anorexia nervosa. As one who’s similarly stared into the sun and survived, it is not cliché to say we look through life’s lens with new eyes. Few have the capacity, passion or compassion to articulate this experience and fully register with an audience. This is what makes Dotsie precious as a speaker, athlete and friend. In her radiant presence, we feel felt. The impact is illuminating."
"The Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table featured Olympic cyclist and medalist Dotsie Bausch at our annual Women and Girls In Sports Luncheon celebrating the lasting impact of Title IX and its influence on our local athletes. Dotsie reached out and touched the hearts of our 400 high school and college athletes with her frank talk about overcoming an eating disorder and achieving her life goals through passion, persistence and the courage to be imperfect. We have received incredible, strong positive feedback on her presentation from the schools, the athletes, the coaches and our sponsors. We would highly recommend Dotsie for any future speaking engagement."
