Sporting relatives

Sisters are speed skaters, one a reserve for the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Games. (Athlete, Oct 2017)


Three surgeries: right knee in September 2012; left foot in August 2014 - had to remove nerve between third and fourth toe due to encapsulation of the nerve and a constant 'shocking' - and ankle reconstruction in July 2015. Took a full year of recovery and was close to retiring from track; could not run for six months. Also sustained a concussion in December 2015 after falling on the ice." (Athlete, Oct 2017)

Reason: "Took up this sport when I was nine. Being the youngest of four, we were constantly out being active. My two older sisters were involved in track and field and I would always chase them down on the track." (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Ambition: "Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and to compete at Gotzis (combined events competition) against the best heptathletes in the world. From there the goal is to stay healthy and train for the Doha 2019 World Championships, then obviously the (Tokyo 2020) Olympic trials." (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Memorable: "The 2017 season was a year when I was healthy and competing well. Up until the 2017 World University Games in Taiwan, I had won every combined event I participated in." (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Hero: "My sister in speed skating, Jessica ZELINKA (CAN) in the heptathlon, Damian WARNER (CAN) in the decathlon, Les GRAMANTIK (CAN) as a coach, Linda BLADE (CAN) as a coach." (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Ritual: "Breathe and pray. I am a Christian athlete and know that I have a gift and a story to tell through my sport." (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Additional information

"I continually remind those around me that even though I am the only one competing on the track, it is a team that has brought me to that place. It is Winsport and Canadian Sport Institute (CSI), my coaches since I was nine until now, family, massage therapists, sport psychologists and everyone else in my life that has helped me to become the girl and athlete I am today." (Athlete, Oct 2017)
