Short Biography

Kyle Shewfelt is a serial optimist who believes in the power of a high five.

Kyle speaks about potential – challenging our limits, finding opportunities within obstacles, setting ourselves up for success and staying focused on a vision.

Full Biography

Kyle Shewfelt is a perpetual optimist who believes in the power of a high five. He has made it his mission to help others see their potential and actively engage in their quest to achieve it.

After becoming a 3 time Olympian, 3 time World Championships medalist and the 2004 Olympic Champion, Kyle is Canada’s most successful gymnast in history. His stirring Gold Medal performance in Athens, Canada’s first and only medal in the sport of Artistic Gymnastics, inspired thousands of youngsters to tumble into gyms across the country.

What makes his athletic journey even more remarkable is the courage he showed in the face of adversity.

In August of 2007, Kyle suffered a devastating injury in a training accident in Stuttgart, Germany. A millisecond of misjudgment on a landing led to two broken legs, just below his knees. Kyle embarked on the biggest comeback of his career and only had 11 months to recover in time for the 2008 Beijing Games. He qualified and his road back inspired as many people as his gold medal performance had four years earlier.

Retired since 2009, Kyle is now a speaker, event host, television broadcaster and owner of Kyle Shewfelt Gymnastics – a grassroots focused gymnastics facility in Calgary. He is an honoured member of Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame; a proud ambassador for Gymnastics Canada, Right To Play, Kidsport and Special Olympics; and a member of the board for the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport.
