Larkyn Austman is representing Canada in PyeongChang Winter Olympics RIGHT NOW and at the 2018 Milan, Italy ISU World Championships in March. Help her realize her dreams by giving her every opportunity to prepare for this ultimate achievement!

Help me make this Olympic & World fairytale dream THE BEST IT CAN BE for this amazing young lady.

My name is Daryl Austman and I'm a 2nd cousin to Larkyn, but in many ways, she is like a niece to me. Her family and mine are both heavily involved in skating here in Canada and the family skating roots go back quite far.

I've watched Larkyn, grow-up, mature, strengthen her mind, body, and skills over the past 10+ yrs as she moved toward this amazing achievement.

I've also watched her parents work extremely hard to provide the support, financially and emotionally, she has needed to get to this spot in her competitive career.

Skating competitively at the National Senior level is challenging with competition, travel, boots/blades, outfits/dresses, training, coaching fees/expenses, ice-time, choreography and many more expenses.  Moving into the Olympic and World arenas as a relative newcomer, the expenses are going to skyrocket... additional training, more coaching, extra ice-time and off-ice training, more travel expenses, etc. etc.

Larkyn as a 12 yr old 2010 Vancouver Olympics Flower RetrieverLarkyn began this Olympic journey 8 yrs ago when she stepped out on to the 2010 Vancouver Olympics ice surface as a 12 yr old flower retriever for Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir's Gold medal as well as the infamous Joannie Rochette Bronze medal moment.

I want more than anything to help her truly live this dream to her highest ability, reach as high as possible and succeed in meeting her goals. I'm hoping that you too will join me by supporting her financially with a donation to help her be the best she can be. With this new endeavor in mind, Larkyn will be able to put her complete mind and soul into focussing on her training only into this short training time period. Larkyn CAN make us all proud, CAN represent Canada proudly and CAN make all the sacrifices both she and her parents have made these past 10-15 yrs worth every penny.

Please join me and pledge your financial support for this dynamic, hardworking, motivated and self-driven skater. Give her the best shot possible and live a little of your own Olympic dream vicariously through her efforts.

100% OF THE NET FUNDING RAISED WILL GO DIRECTLY TO Larkyn Austman to help with Olympic/Worlds

expenses.
