The Sheldon Kennedy Show – Episode 4.
Recorded on June 21st, 2021.
Empathetic communication—through sport, dance, public speaking, or charity—is Kaitlyn’s passion and gift. As an athlete, she reached the highest honour of figure skating and competed for Canada at the Olympic Games, and thrice stood on the World podium with her long-time ice dance partner, Andrew Poje. Kaitlyn remains active in the professional skating world and uses her platform for advocacy while dividing her time between New York, NY and Toronto, ON.
Post-competitive life finds this ambitious creative engaging in her skating community, participating in and initiating global fundraisers, and part-time coaching and choreography.
In June 2021, Weaver publicly came out as a queer woman, making her the second female Olympic figure skater in history to do so.
