Commented Sanya Richards-Ross: "I am absolutely thrilled to have this opportunity to partner with WE tv and Good Clean Fun to share the adventure that is my life. My quest for Olympic gold wouldn't have been possible without my family, who is behind me all the way! I'm so looking forward to sharing our journey to grow our businesses and expand my career all while I try to keep my marriage first - something women can truly identify with.
