2010 Olympic gold medal winning ski racer Ashleigh McIvor paid a whirlwind visit to a couple of local elementary schools last week… first to John Muir, then to Saseenos where these images were captured.

The gold medal achiever delivered an inspiring message to the students, all about believing themselves and sticking to their dreams and goals.

McIvor shared her own story of setting goals and chasing them in spite of any setbacks  that may come up along the way.

The Whistler-based athlete also shared the news that she’ll be branching out this summer… taking advantage of the cross-training opportunity available to her in the Subaru Sooke Triathlon scheduled to be held this year on August 7.
