Tania Bambi

Tania Bambi

Hometown: Gatineau, QC
Age: 22
As one of six kids, Tania Bambi knew she’d have to do something to stand out. So she did - winning three national titles and four provincial competitions in hurdles. Then she had to drop out. Her coach said she’s got what it takes; she just has to give it her all. With renewed purpose, she’s more determined than ever to win Olympic gold.

Pierce LePage

Pierce LePage

Pierce LePage has played sports since he could walk. When he tried Track and Field, he broke a Canadian triple jump record. Then he broke it again. Now focused on decathlon, Pierce trains five hours a day and five days a week in 10 track and field events. It’s only a matter of time before he starts shattering more records.
athlete background
Kieanna Stephens

Kieanna Stephens

Hometown: Surrey, BC

Ask Kieanna Stephens who her hero is and she’ll tell you, it’s her mom. Her favourite athlete is her brother Devante, an NHL draft pick. The B.C. teen, already a local hockey star, is ready to shine even brighter as she takes a new step in a different direction - towards Olympic glory.
