Bailey Yearley

 Bailey-Yearley Hometown: Prince George
CKBC Club: Prince George Canoe & Kayak Club
Age: 12
Number of years paddling: This is my first year (competitively)
How paddling makes a difference in my life: I was recovering from a bad knee injury, and was really sad that I couldn’t do any of my favourite sports. We went to an outdoor activities festival in Prince George and met Gemma and Mark from the PG Canoe and Kayak Club. They told me about their club open house the next week, I went and I loved the race kayaks and found a new sport I could participate in.
2018 BC Summer Games goals: To do my best, and have a great time!
Canoe kayak goals:
To be able to do it in the Canada summer games.
Other interests and hobbies: Swimming, basketball, mountain biking, and writing.
Training program leading up to the BC Summer Games: I have team practice two times a week, and I swim lengths at the pool to keep up my core and upper arm strength and my stamina.
My coach: Gemma has helped me a lot, by using swim references to help me understand better. She was a swimmer, too, when she was my age—in the same club I swim with now.
Role model: My cousin Hannah, because she has taught me that through hard work and dedication, I can make anything possible.
Highest achievement:
Being part of the gold-winning team in the Prince George Iceman competition in February this year. We won in the girls under 15 division, and the six of us were all 11 and 12 years old.
Other family members at Games: My cousins, Hannah and Hayden, have and so has my uncle. Hannah swims nationally and internationally, and Hayden and my uncle play lacrosse.
Would choose this superpower: If I would be able to a superpower, I would choose something similar to a photographic memory, so that I could get a academic scholarship to a great university.
