Sorry to hear about this, Lory, but its really not posible to guess from this distance. Sexual abuse has varying effects on us, but those effects can be minimised by proper CBT counselling. You don't mention how long yopu have been devoting yourself to the athletics, but maybe this total devotion to athletics was in part a reaction to, and even a degree of avoidance of, the abuse experience, and dealing properly and realistically with it through CBT counselling would clear things up usefully. And of course Depression is a real possibility which often leads to a loss of interest especially in wwhatever usually interests us the most
