Ski Racer I 2021 Women of Inspiration™ Youth Excellence Award

Olivia is one incredible 14-year-old female. She is a member of the Banff Alpine Racers and was ranked 3rd in Slalom and 7th in Super-G for all females born 2007 across Canada in 2020. She was also awarded Most Improved U14 Club Athlete in 2020 and won The Ski Canada Magazine Award and Scholarship in 2021. Though skiing is her first passion, Olivia is also a competitive Martial Artist who is training & testing seriously in Karate, Muay Thai, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with 5 Elements Martial Arts and is rising up the ranks. She takes training seriously for all disciplines and still finds time to mentor younger students as a Senpai (assistant Karate coach).

In the winter Oliva is up at 5:30 am to train and when there is no snow, you will find her at the dojo 5 days a week. Her sports demand strength and resilience, 2 key qualities for whichever profession she decides on. Never losing sight of the need to keep studying hard, she applied for and was accepted into the National Sport School starting September 2021. With this support, Olivia believes she can achieve goals to be the best she can be in sport and her chosen profession. Though undecided she is considering pursuing either law, kinesiology, or engineering.
