Luge Canada

McKinley Casson

Events: Singles
Team NextGen A Team
Birth Date:September 19, 2004

After multiple years of karate, McKinley wanted to try something different.  He attended a luge recruitment camp at Canada Olympic Park and instantly fell in love with the sport.  At 12 years old, he joined the novice team. The following season he moved into Development A and is now heading into his fourth season with the NextGen B team!  Luge provides the opportunity for McKinley to harness his need for speed and travel the world.

When McKinley isn’t on the track he enjoys baseball, camping, hunting, skiing and listening to country music.  In between spending time outdoors and being active in sports, he does find time to hang with family and friends.  McKinley also ran his first half marathon in 2019 (just for the fun of it!)

McKinley attends the National Sport School.
