Name: Sheryl Preston
Hometown: North Delta, BC
Favorite Sports Memory:
I would say my favorite sports memory of all was being the athlete of the year in grade 7. This was the first time ever I can vividly remember realizing how gratifying it is to be one of the best.
What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger (what one of my first rowing coaches, Brenda Taylor, told me and I now live by it)
CAN Fund Testimonial:
Jane and the rest of the CAN Fund crew have helped tremendously by lifting a good deal of my financial burden with the CAN Fund.
Most recent are two 2009 World Cup bronze medals, both in the lightweight double.
I absolutely love pushing “limits”, though I think limits are a figment of our imagination. When I am finished with high performance sport I want to play endlessly in the outdoors, do another ironman (but train for it this time), and some ultra trail running. My dream career(s) are to be a yoga instructor/sommelier/chef/coach while I pursue my science (cancer) research.
