Hailing from what she calls a “royal bloodline of world champions”, Whitney McClintock believes she has always been destined to stand atop the podium as a proud Canadian. On the national team since 2003 when she was barely a teenager, McClintock is a seven-time Pan Am Games medallist (including three gold) and a five-time world champion. The biggest highlight was at the 2009 World Championships in Calgary where she won four of a possible five gold medals. Still just 19, she was named that year’s IWWF Female Athlete of the Year, having also won three U21 world titles. Through the 2014 season, McClintock had 20 professional titles to her credit.
