Catriona Le May Doan
This two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and five-time World Champion, is one ofCanada’s most successful and highly decorated athletes. She is the first and only Canadian individual to defend a gold medal at any Olympic Games. Her unwavering commitment and drive towards her goals is an inspiration for fellow athletes and Canadians in any situation.
After carrying the Canadian flag into the 2002 Olympic Winter Games opening ceremonies (her fourth Olympics), Catriona defended her Olympic title with a Gold medal performance in the 500 metre event, becoming the only Canadian individual to defend a gold medal at any Olympic Games. She held the World Record in the 500m for 10 years and still currently holds the Olympic Record. During her career Catriona broke 13 World Records.
Catriona’s accomplishments have earned her the 2002 Lou Marsh Award asCanada’s Athlete of the Year and she is a three-time recipient (1998, 2001, 2002) of the Canadian Female Athlete of the Year award.
Catriona is an articulate and engaging presenter. Her story is an inspiration, and her ability to explore with audiences the method of achieving personal excellence while challenging and motivating people to achieve their full potential is unmatched.
Janet Stewart, host of CBC News Winnipeg, has made connecting with the community one of her top priorities. She uses her skills to help as many charitable organizations as possible.
Janet has been nominated for a Best News Anchor Gemini. It was a quite a thrill to be listed alongside Peter Mansbridge and Kevin Newman. CBC’s local newscast, the show she helps write and produce, has also been nominated as Best Newscast in Canada.
Janet studied journalism at the University of King’s College in Halifax. She went on to report and anchor for CBC Radio, CTV and Global in Nova Scotia, before moving to Winnipeg in 2001.
When not at work or helping charities, Janet is most often acting as primary servant to a spoiled rotten13 year old dog, a pug named Albert. She can also occasionally be seen with another member of Albert’s staff, her husband Dave.
