My goals for the 2007 Canada Winter Games
My goal for the 2007 Canada Winter Games is to represent my province in the sport of speed skating. I plan to improve upon my performance in my sport as well as compete on a high level with athletes from around the country. I will do my best to positively represent my province.
My personal role model
My role model is my father. Though not an athlete, he has been involved with speed skating in my hometown since it first began. Although he is very busy, he always makes time to encourage me at speed skating practices and competitions, as well as provide instruction for the entire club.
Other information that could be of interest to the media
I am following in the footsteps of my two older sisters, who both competed in short track speed skating at the previous two Canada Winter Games. I plan to carry on my family's tradition of competition at the Canada Winter Games.
