Canadians fell in love with Kailie Humphries during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, when she and Heather Moyse became the first Canadian women to win gold in Olympic bobsledding. And Kaillie will forever remember that first trip to an Olympic podium.
Kaillie and her partner weren’t done yet... the duo of Moyse and Humphries became the first women ever to repeat as Olympic bobsleigh champions, when they won gold at the 2014 Games in Sochi. They were also named Canada’s flag bearers for the Closing Ceremony.
Kailie went on in 2018, to become Canada’s most decorated Olympic bobsledder after winning the bronze in PyeongChang.
On this episode of Run It Like a Girl, Kaillie Humphries tells us about the moment that Olympic spark was ignited within her.
