Words To Live By

‘Those at the top of the mountain didn’t fall there’


My name is Heather McLean, I am a Canadian Long Track Speed Skater from Winnipeg, Manitoba. I first started speed skating at the young age of 3 and ever since then I have been pursuing my dream of becoming an Olympian. Successes include becoming the 2015 Canadian National Champion in the 500m, and challenges include creating new goals to pursue everyday. I am constantly laughing and I never turn down a challenge. Outside of skating I enjoy baking custom cakes and macarons, reading and mountain biking.
