In 2000, Katelynn Ramage’s hometown of Nanaimo hosted the BC Summer Games. At the young age of 7, she saw those athletes as Olympians and she wanted to do what they were doing. Ten years later she got her real start in athletics and competed at the Western Canadian Games. That made her realize her ultimate goal was not just to represent her school, city, or province, but to wear the maple leaf internationally. She achieved that goal by qualifying for the 2014 IAAF World Race Walking Cup where she posted a personal best time of 1:49:30 in the 20km race walk.
