As an athlete, I have been lucky enough to meet, and be inspired by, incredible people. Many of whom are athletes, on my own team and in other sports. As I juggle my studies, training and personal life, I take a look at the exciting accomplishments of other Canadian athletes for fuel and perspective. Below are 15 exceptional blogs, in no particular order, by Canadians who are taking on the world, often times simply for the joy of sport and the small glory of seeing how far they can push themselves.
Have a look through the links, and be sure to follow these inspirational Canadians as they push for their goals.
