A strong believer in the power of sport to motivate youth, Zach welcomes the opportunity to get together with corporate and community audiences to share the everyday challenges and successes of competing for Canada.. "Olympians and Olympic Champions are not epic talents or superheroes.. Each and every Olympian I know was a normal kid with a community that believed in the potential of what might be hidden in their young people.. The communities these Olympians grow up in never fully know what sort of result they are fostering with their support.. They just know they are supporting something positive.. Here in the Yukon, one of those positive things is the opportunity for our young athletes to participate in the Arctic Winter Games, and in my experience, it was the single most important event for me growing up in this northern sporting community.. It will involve more kids than any other team assembled by Sport Yukon, it celebrates our northern culture, and it will surely play a major role in the lives of every potential northern Olympian growing up here right now..
