(December 11, 2009) – It was a snowy day in St. Moritz, Switzerland when Barbara Ann Scott took the ice to win gold at the 1948 Olympic Winter Games. At just 19-years-old she became an Olympic champion and Canada’s sweetheart. That same year, she won the Canadian Championships, North America Championships, European Championships, World Championships, and an Olympic title, becoming the first North American to win all five titles in the same year. Today Barbara Ann lives in Amelia Island, Florida with her husband Tom King. She will carry the torch along Baseline Road in Ottawa, Ontario this Sunday, December 13, 2009.

In 1988 Canadians sat on the edge of their seats as Elizabeth Manley stepped onto the arena ice to skate her free program at the 1988 Olympic Winter Games in Calgary, Alberta. The very likeable petit blond had Canadians infatuated with her energy and determination as she won the free program on her way to winning the Olympic silver medal. She currently lives in Ottawa with her husband Brent Theobald and coach’s figure skating at the Gloucester Skating Club. Elizabeth will carry the torch on Sunday, December 13, 2009 in Almonte, Ontario.
