Anson Henry brings a wealth of firsthand experience and knowledge to his role as a multi-platform reporter for CBC/Radio-Canada’s coverage of the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, having competed for Canada on the world’s biggest stages including two Olympic Games.

Henry joined the CBC Sports team in the fall of 2013 and has covered several major national and international sporting events for the network both in front of and behind the camera, including the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. His ability to relate to athletes on a personal level and put them at ease has allowed him to produce unique interviews and features that go beyond the standard post-game interview to show audiences a lighter side of some of Canada’s and the world’s top athletes.

Before entering the world of sports journalism, Henry was a successful high-performance athlete in his own right, representing Canada at two Olympic Games (Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008) as a sprinter in the 100m and 4x100m events. He is a two-time Pan Am Games medallist and a Commonwealth Games bronze medallist and was an NCAA All-American during his time at Washington State University, where he still holds school records in the 60m, 100m and 200m events.

Prior to joining CBC Sports Henry completed a graduate program in sports journalism at Centennial College in Toronto. He also holds a degree in business from Washington State University.
