she provided one of the most memorable moments of the Beijing Olympics winning Canada’s first medal of the Games and celebrated with tears of joy trickling down her face.

As a high-schooler growing up in the small town of Hazelton in Northern B.C. where her Chinese parents had been welcomed as refugees -- it was her older brother and sister who were always encouraging Carol to get into sports.

She grew up playing every sport she could and when she was 15 joined her high school wrestling team.  Carol’s incredible quickness and strength was evident immediately and it helped her get recruited to Simon Fraser University where her wrestling skills continued to flourish -- eventually making the Senior Canadian Team in 2000 and becoming an eleven-time Canadian Champion.

But it was in 2008 when she provided one of the most memorable moments of the Beijing Olympics winning Canada’s first medal of the Games and celebrated with tears of joy trickling down her face while she stood atop the podium as O'Canada played.

Four years later, after battling through injuries and self doubt -- the first woman to win an Olympic gold in wrestling for Canada -- emerged a two-time Olympic medalist battling to win a bronze medal at the Games in London.
