Name: Michelle Kelly
Hometown: Grande Prairie, AB
Favorite Sport Memory:
- Winning bronze at the 2005 Calgary, World Championships, in honour of my stepfather, 2 months after his passing, in front of my family on Alberta’s Family Day.
- Standing on the top step of the podium for the first time and hearing “Oh Canada”…I was never so proud to be Canadian!
There are many things in life that will catch your eye, but only a few will catch your heart….PURSUE THOSE!
CAN Fund Testimonial:
As an amateur athlete in Canada, I know first hand that no one makes it to the top without a lot of help along the way…from family, friends, community and organizations such as CAN Fund. It is a privilege to be a part of an organization like CAN Fund, whose main focus is to help give back to the athletic community, and try to make a difference in the lives of so many talented athletes by helping them achieve their goals and aspirations. CAN Fund helps to relieve a lot of monetary stress in the lives of Canadian athletes so that when they hit the starting line they can focus all their energies on representing Canada/themselves/their sport to the best of their ability.
World Champion/Overall World Cup Champion
I worked in heavy construction for 4 summers driving heavy machinery. I trained with the famous “Hart” wrestling family out of Calgary, and briefly considered a career in entertainment wrestling…I have even been in the ring. I can still do flips, courtesy of my 13 year career as a gymnast.
