Name: John Sasijohn-sasi
Sport: Rowing
Hometown: North Delta, BC

Favorite Sport Memory:
My favorite sports memory was winning national team trials in the pair for the first time. I had worked a long time to get to that point and it felt amazing crossing that line first knowing that I was another step closer to reaching my Olympic dreams.

Favorite Quote:
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.
– Aristotle

CAN Fund Testimonial:
Receiving funding from CAN Fund is a huge relief for me. Now I can focus on eating and recovering properly between training sessions instead of having to squeeze in extra shifts at work to make ends meet.

Best Result:
4th place, 2006 World Rowing Championships

Fun Facts:
I only train in socks that I buy in Europe as they are more comfortable and make me faster.
