Grace Dafoe

A born and raised Calgarian, Grace always had a passion for competing on ice. It began with figure skating – a sport she competed in from ages 3-18 – this led her to the Canada Olympic Park. When the ice rink facility opened, Grace knew she had reached her peak in the sport and became interested in the sliding sports after watching the 2010 and 2006 Olympics. Working her way through the development pathway, Grace’s first win came on her home track in 2015 when she won the North America’s Cup race in Calgary. She says standing on the podium, listening to the Canadian anthem, is her favorite sporting memory. Her first trip off the continent for skeleton was with her mom where Grace represented Canada at the Junior World Championships 2016.
