Kaitlyn Lawes is a curler from Winnipeg, MB, and third on Team Jennifer Jones. Curling from the age of four, Kaitlyn says her family’s passion for the sport naturally sparked her own. Kaitlyn has many notable memories from her journey in sport, largely due to her love of travelling and spending time with her teammates, all of whom she respects and admires greatly. Kaitlyn says one of her biggest accomplishments was winning the Olympic trials in Winnipeg. “Winning in our home city in front of friends and family is something I will never forget.” Also on her list was winning an Olympic Gold medal in the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
Born, raised, educated and still living in Winnipeg, Kaitlyn says a huge part of what she loves about the city are the passionate sports fans everywhere, who fill arenas, streets and restaurants. Her wish in sport is to challenge herself until she can’t anymore.
“My ultimate goal is to continue to compete as long as I feel like I can still get better, and to have fun doing it.”
