Clara Hugues: Speed Skating & Cycling


Clara Hughes, a speed skater and cyclist is also an Olympic Gold Medalist. Most of us will never know the feeling of mastering one sport but Clara Hughes knows what it's like to master two. Among only four people in the world to win medals at both a summer and winter Olympics, Clara credits athletics with giving her life direction and focus, especially as a teen. Born into an artistic family, Clara balances her time between training, her new home in Glen Sutton, Quebec and pursuing an arts degree at the University of Calgary.
