When you come from a family of gifted athletes, there’s a strong chance your career path might already be mapped out for you. But it’s Sarah Nurse’s hard work, paired with her natural abilities on the ice that has made her the accomplished pro athlete, Olympian and role model she is today. Sarah played a key role as Team Canada won the Gold Medal at the 2022 Beijing Olympic winter games. She set the record for most points (18) and most assists (13) in a single Olympic tournament. She was named to the tournament All-Star Team. This is her second Olympic medal as she also helped her team win a Silver Medal at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics. Included on her long list of accomplishments is an IIHF gold medal as Canada beat the USA in overtime at the 2021 World Championships in Calgary. Off the ice, she is leading the conversation around diversity and inclusion in hockey as one of the only women of colour in a male-dominated sport. She sits on the board of the Professional Women's Hockey Player Association (PWHPA) where she advocates to promote, advance, and support a single, viable professional women’s ice hockey league in North America that showcases the greatest product of women’s professional ice hockey in the world.
