Going for Gold

A race or journey to success is made up of a series of defining moments. At 38 years of age, Lori-Ann was the underdog in cycling at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, but as far she was concerned, she was just getting started on her journey to win an Olympic medal.

In a cycling career that spanned twenty years, Lori-Ann has seen it all. The glory of winning more than a dozen national titles, but there have been defeat and injuries too.  Instead of quitting, she raised the bar.

At any point in her cycling career, Lori-Ann could have decided the effort to continue competitive cycling was too much. Instead she developed strategies to stay focused and how to develop a plan to win.

Personal challenges, physical setbacks, and the unbelievable drive for success earned Lori-Ann Canada’s first ever Olympic Gold medal in cycling. And a permanent place in the history books.
