vancouver: Four years later, she picked up the country's first medal of the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver a silver, according to CTV. Now retired from the sport, Heil said though she received a lot of support throughout her career, she also had feelings of inequity. She won Canada's first gold in the 2006 games in Turin, Italy.

Heil now works with the non-profit via Sport, as the vice-president of sport development. It's subtle and small and you carry it with you. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
