The Fastest Women in Canada Record Holder in the 200M Athlete, Crystal Emmanuel

Tell us a little something about your business...

Since I decided to start my journey in track and field, I have seen women and girls being told that they can’t do thing boys and men can do; I’m determined to show that we as females can do anything we put our minds to. Being able to make history in Canada as the Canadian record holder in the 200m, I can put my action to work in helping other women and girls understand that we are capable of becoming our best selves no matter if we are sitting at a desk, playing in the gym, running, jumping, swimming or being a mother.

When was your lightbulb moment?

My lightbulb moment was 2016 when I made the olympic semi-finals. I told myself that I don’t want to be a semi-finalist anymore, I need to set my goals and make them higher – I know I can be a finalist or even a medallist, my journey to being a top world class athlete is just beginning. In 2017, I became the first female in Canada to make a world championship final. Becoming the fastest women in Canada was a key milestone that showed me that I am on the right track to becoming one of the world’s best female 
athletes – the sky is the limit!
