Favorite Sports Memory: Competing at the 2008 Olympic Qualifying tournament in Victoria, Canada, in front of family, friends and Canadian supporters.

The moment you knew you wanted to represent Canada: I remember watching the 1988 Seoul Olympics on tv when I was 6, and thinking “I don’t know what sport I’m going to choose but I’m going to go to the Olympics when I’m older!”
