Other information that could be of interest to the media
In March 2006, while competing at the Arctic Winter Games in Kenai Alaska for Team Yukon's Junior Boys Speedkskating team, I had a collision that resulted in a lacerated knee, torn cartilage and a fractured femur. Emergency surgery put me back together, but in the two months I was on crutches, and the rehab that followed gave me a lot of time to wonder if I would be able to qualify for the Canada Winter Games. I was so happy when I made qualifying times. I feel I've already achieved success at these games, simply by being back on the ice and representing Yukon. I want to skate well and hope to make personal best times.
