LYNN KANUKA: Olympic Medalist, Coach, Entrepreneur
Designer of 8 week training plan for the RainForest Trail Run
I am best known for my Bronze medal performance at the LA Olympic Games in 1984.
I’ve held every Canadian record for middle distance from 1000m-10K and have held
the 1500m and 10k road record since 1985.
I’ve enjoyed off shoots of my running career in my professional life as a business owner,
television analyst, motivational speaker, personal, corporate and athletics trainer/coach.
My passion for over 25 years has been to inspire people of all ages and ability levels through
physical fitness; to take steps toward better health, achieve personal goals, and be active and happy.
In my role as SportMedBC’s RunWalk Coach I’m very proud to have pioneered the
Aboriginal RunWalk program which began with 20 participants 10 years ago and now together
with the Healthy Living Activities initiative has inspired literally thousands of Aboriginal people
throughout BC to create positive change by running or walking together in fitness and health.
Proudest accomplishment: No contest! Four wonderful children!
