Olympic gold medalist Sanya Richards Ross recently graced the cover of the latest issue of Pynk Magazine’s “Elite.” Last year, Richards started her very own WEtv reality show Sanya’s Glam & Gold where the track runner shows how she balanced her life. Sanya is currently married to two-time Super Bowl champion Aaron Ross. Aside from having a track career, she is also busy with her hair salon business as well as a her hair extension line, Rich Hair Collection.
How does she feel being married to an athlete? Sanya said:
“It’s as hard or as easy as you make it. Because [Aaron] Ross and I started dating in college, I think we figured out what worked for us very early on. I met him and then just a month later, I traveled for a month to compete. He would stay with me a lot and I remember my sister said he would be in the house listening to slow jams. You know, missing me [laughs]. But it’s just been great. We encourage each other. We support each other. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. So, when he’s away at training camp, I miss him desperately and can’t wait to see him and vice-versa. I think it minimizes our fights [laughs] because we’re so excited to see each other most of the time. It’s awesome. It works well for us.”
How can she handle all of these?
