My goals for the 2007 Canada Winter Games
My goals are to get personal bests in all distances and to win a medal in the relay.

My personal role models are my cousins Denny and Jay Morrison. They are both on the National Long Track Speed Skating Team. Denny won a silver medal in Torino in the Men's pursuit.
Other information that could be of interest to the media
I started speed skating nine years ago after watching my cousin Denny Morrison skate at the Canadian Age Class Short Track Championships in Waterloo, Ontario. I hope to go to Calgary to the training centre, when I am finished high school.
