My name is Heather McLean, I am a 20-year-old Speed Skater born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I have been a Speed Skater since the early age of 3, and I am currently training at the Olympic Oval in Calgary, Alberta. Over the past 17 years I have competed in multiple provincial and national championships in both Long and Short Track Speed Skating. In 2011 I decided to focus my efforts on Long Track in hopes of making the National Speed Skating Team and qualifying for the Olympics. Some of my achievements include winning a Gold medal at the 2011 Canada Winter games and qualifying for the 2012 Junior World Championships and placing 10th overall in the 500m.

The Olympic Oval is the home of the Canadian National Training Centre and is widely considered the best Speed Skating facility in the world, however training in Calgary comes at a high cost. I am not a carded athlete, which means that the cost of rent, travel, training fees and everything in between is up to me to provide. Working a summer job does not cover nearly enough of my expenses which is why I am looking for support from you!

I would like you to join my journey towards competing on the world stage and representing Canada. I put everything I have, twice a day, six days of a week in pursuit of my dreams. Although Speed Skating is an individual sport, it will take a team to help me reach my goals.
