Simon Whitfield has relentlessly pursued excellence in sport – and in life – for as long as he or anyone around him can remember. As a youngster, his future gold medal-winning speed first showed up on the soccer pitch. At 11, he put his horsepower to use in his first triathlon when a family friend organized a race just north of his hometown of Kingston, Ontario. He entered, looking like a future professional “in boxer shorts with cows on ’em, and a Mickey Mouse hat,” to meet the challenge of a friend. He lost that challenge, but found a calling: getting serious about triathlon and honing his skills in the local Canadian Kids of Steel program.

Shaunna Burke

Shaunna’s passion for the mountains has led her to become the second Canadian woman in history to summit Mount Everest. This success on May 30th 2005 was the culmination of a very distinguished climbing and academic career. Some of her climbing highlights include a successful ascent of Mount Elbrus, Europe’s highest peak, and the difficult traverse of Mount Blanc from Italy to France. In the fall of 2003, Shaunna climbed Everest to 26,000 feet as part of her research related to what motivates Everest climbers. In 2004, she was a main character in The Discovery Channel documentary mini-series that was filmed on Mt. Everest titled “Ultimate Survival: Everest” and continued to make history by conducting her research while on the upper reaches of the mountain. This body of work that was continued during her successful bid in 2005 has become widely known as “Sport Psychology: Science in the Death Zone.” What separates Shaunna from other academics and/or climbers was her ability to be “in Situ” or “in the moment” collecting her data while she and the other athletes were participating. This is cutting edge science and further opens the window into a greater understanding of the psyche of sport.
