Athlete Testimonials

dave holm_JCLF


David Holm – Track, Calgary International Track Club
Alberta Indoor 800m Provincial Record Holder (35 year old record broken in 2009)
Ranked 7th in Canada at 800 m

As a competitive athlete training at Talisman Centre, what keeps me motivated is the dream to one day represent my country at the Olympic Games. I know that every morning I have the opportunity to be better than I was the day before. The John Currie Amateur Sport Legacy Fund is an amazing program that helps aid amateur athletes. I am proud and grateful to be one of many bursary recipients. "A champion is made when no one is watching."

Caeli McKay – Diving, Dive Calgary
2012 Speedo Junior National Championships – Gold on 1m and 3m springboard
Canadian Junior National Team 2012-2013

I have the privilege of being a bursary recipient. My sport involves a great deal of travel, often out of province which comes with a cost. The bursary helps lessen the financial strain allowing me to focus on my training and goals. The award also acknowledges and recognizes committed athletes. It gave me a feeling of accomplishment, that all those hours of training and dedication to a sport were not going unnoticed. It made me want to work even harder to prove I was deserving of the award.
