Kimberley McRae made an impressive Olympic debut at Sochi 2014 where she finished fifth in the women’s singles event, just one place behind Canada’s top luger Alex Gough. Both women improved upon Canada’s previous best ever Olympic result in the event.

One of the youngest members of the Canadian team, McRae has been competing on the World Cup circuit only since the 2011-12 season. In her world championship debut in 2013, she was one of three Canadian women ranked in the top-eight with her seventh place finish. Her time also earned her the silver medal in the under-23 world championships. She then went on to finish ninth at the World Cup that was the official test event of the Sanki Sliding Centre in Sochi.

McRae had experienced the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games as a forerunner. She has had success against some of the world’s top competitors. In December 2011 she won silver at the America-Pacific Championships, defeating American Erin Hamlin who had been world champion in 2009.

PERSONAL

Getting Into the Sport: Introduced to luge at a ski show in Calgary in 2004 at age 11 where the Canadian Luge Association had set up a booth… She tried out a wheeled sled and was hooked…  Was drawn by the uniqueness of the sport and the adrenaline it gave her… Odds and Ends: Enjoys reading and exploring the places they stay during their competitive travels… Graduated from the National Sports School in 2010… Always listens to country music during her warmup because it reminds her of home and calms her down…
