Kaillie Humphries is simply one of the most dominant athletes in Canada's history.

With three World Cup Overall titles, two World Championship wins, back-to-back Olympic gold medals in 2010 and in 2014, and a Lou Marsh Award as Canada's top athlete, she's solidified her reputation as the best female pilot in the world.

Then, in September 2014, came a new, unexpected challenge.

Bobsleigh's international governing body announced that they would allow mixed-gender teams to enter the 4-person event giving Kaillie the opportunity to compete against men.

Seizing the opportunity to break a long-standing barrier, Kaillie piloted a mixed-gender team in two North America Cup events, finishing sixth and second, before becoming the first woman to pilot an all-female 4-person team in a men's World Cup.

Emboldened by the possibility of change within the sport, Kaillie has become a champion for gender equality and is actively leading an international movement for the inclusion of 4-woman bobsleigh in the Olympic programme.

She's also an ambassador for Fuelling Women Champions, a national program that supports community sport initiatives that help change the game for young women across Canada and encourage a lifetime of health benefits.

Challenged with body image issues for most of her life, Kaillie has never conformed to a standard definition of feminine beauty.

With a physique crafted in the gym through countless hours of training and body art that defies convention, she’s learned to love both her form and its function.
