Kathleen Carole (KC) FraserIt was in December 2009 that KC Fraser decided to make one final run at making the National Team. She already had many national championship medals to her credit, but with a newfound sense of motivation and the guidance of coach Peter Martinek, she achieved her goal in half a year. Showing continual improvement, Fraser won her first World Cup medal, a bronze in the K-2 200m with Genevieve Orton in 2011. At the 2011 Pan American Games she was a member of the K-4 500m gold medal crew. She just missed out on qualifying for the lone Canadian women’s kayak berth at London 2012. Fraser began the next season with four World Cup medals in K-2 and K-4 events and capped it with a sixth place finish in the K-4 500m at the 2013 World Championships, Canada best result in the event in a decade. In 2014 she won a World Cup silver medal in the K-2 1000m  and competed in both the K-4 500m and K-2 500m at the world championships.
