An inspirational athlete who consistently enthralled Canadians with her Olympic performances, she is quite possibly one of Canada’s most recognizable Olympians. Winning bronze at the 1984 Los Angeles games, her greatest performance came in the 1992 Barcelona games. Only 10 weeks after demolishing her leg in a sculling accident, she preserved through pain and mental anguish to win another bronze. A silver medal followed in 1996 and she was inducted into the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame in 1998. Laumann is a proud member of the Canadian Olympic Association and was the recipient of the 2003 National Child Day Award from the Canadian Institute of Child Health. In September 2004, she established The Silken Laumann Active Kid’s Movement, a national charity dedicated to increasing physical activity in children. Laumann is a dynamic inspirational speaker with a disarming sense of humour.
