Summit Emcees and Keynote

Sport for Life is very proud to have Beckie Scott, Olympian and leader in community sport in Canada, as one of our keynote speakers.
Beckie Scott retired in 2006 as Canada’s most decorated cross-country ski racer in the history of the sport. A three-time Olympian, Scott won gold in Salt Lake City in 2002, becoming the first Canadian (and first North American woman) to win an Olympic medal in cross-country skiing. She followed that up with Olympic silver in 2006, and a record 17 World Cup podium finishes.

Kim St-Pierre, Olympic Gold Medallist, and Ram Nayyar, National Coach for Badminton Canada’s Para Program, will be our emcees during the Summit.
Kim St-Pierre helped Canada win gold at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Games, the 2006 Turin Olympic Games and the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games in women’s ice hockey. Kim also helped the national team win five gold and four silver medals at the World Championships.

Ram is currently the Head Coach for Badminton Canada’s Para Badminton Program, with previous experience as High-Performance Director and Head National Coach for Badminton Canada. He is also the Head Coach for the Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton Club, and a Master Learning Facilitator holding coach education workshops throughout Canada.
