Ellie-2

Canada’s most decorated female artistic gymnast debuted at the Olympic
Games at London
2012. Four years later, she gained international fame for a
breakthrough performance at Rio
2016, where she placed 5th in the
individual all-around—the best ever for a Canadian in
women’s
artistic gymnastics. Just a year later, Ellie made history again
with a silver medal in
the individual all-around at the
world championships. Heading into Tokyo, the
Halifax
native is hoping to win
Canada’s first ever Olympic medal in
women’s artistic
gymnastics and
make her mom, dad, sister,

and brother proud.

Placing 5th in the decathlon is no small feat, but that’s exactly
what Damian did in his Olympic
debut at London 2012. He
followed up that performance with a bronze at Rio 2016—earning

Canada’s first Olympic medal in the event since 1988.
With the support of his high
school track & field coach, his mom,
girlfriend, and newborn son, Damian has his
sights set on
hearing the Canadian national anthem from the top
of the
podium at the Olympic Games.

Games, Kylie has her eyes on the
top of the podium. Hailing
from LaSalle, Ontario, Kylie credits her mom for
encouraging her

Andre De Grasse

Andre sprinted into the limelight with an impressive performance at Rio
2016, where he became the
first Canadian to earn a medal in all
three sprint events. The Markham, Ontario native famously
set a
national record time when he went head-to-head with Usain
Bolt in the 200m semifinals,
earning him international acclaim.
When Andre’s out of uniform, he’s racing
his
three-year-old daughter to swimming lessons and
using his platform
to make a difference for
the next generation of Canadians.
