Cassie Elise Hawrysh is a Canadian skeleton racer who broke onto the international sliding scene in 2011, and was named the alternate sled for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. With two World Cup fourth place finishes and a team gold, this 2014 Canadian National Champion and overall 2015 ICC Bronze medalist is only just getting started.
Born and raised in Brandon, Manitoba, Cassie began as a volleyball player and multi-event track and field athlete – but discovered skeleton was her true calling in 2009. In the off-season, Cassie splits her training time between Calgary, AB and Phoenix, AZ and enjoys sharing her experiences and passion through motivational speaking. In-season, she travels the world proudly representing the maple leaf, racing head-first at speeds reaching 140km/h!
