World Champion Christopher Blevins Joins Teachaids Ambassador Team
TeachAids is proud to announce that Christopher Blevins has become a TeachAids Ambassador. Blevins is an inspiring cyclist. Most recently, in 2021, he became the Elite Cross Country Short Track World Champion and a 2020 Tokyo Olympian. Throughout his youth career, he competed internationally on both the road and mountain. Blevins won the cross country nationals in his age group when he was 16 and the Course de la Paix – a four day stage race in the Czech Republic – when he was 18. He also won the U23 cyclocross nationals, a stage of the Tour of the Gila, and came in 2nd at the 2018 Cross-Country Cycling World Championship.
Blevins has previously worked with TeachAids on the CrashCourse Initiative, and he volunteered his own experience with traumatic brain injuries for the Concussion Story Wall. “I am so proud to contribute to the CrashCourse Concussion Story Wall. This rings especially true to me, as biking is the greatest cause of sports related concussions in the United States. Working together we can make sports safer,” said Blevins.
“Christopher is a great addition to our team! Being a top athlete in the sports activity which causes the greatest number of concussions in the US and having experienced two traumatic brain injuries himself, he understands the value of our work and helps us create impactful resources,” added Dr. Piya Sorcar, Founder and CEO of TeachAids.
We are grateful for Christopher’s enthusiasm for addressing issues surrounding TBI and sports and would like to give him a warm welcome to the team
