Luge Canada

Kyla Graham

Events: Doubles
Team Next Gen Team
Birth Date:February 20, 1998

Kyla Graham had a dream as a very young child – to slide for Canada at the Olympic Winter Games.

Following a short career in gymnastics when she was told to stop competing due to multiple knee injuries as a teenager, that dream became clearer while heading to Canada Olympic Park to try public bobsleigh when she saw a sign advertising luge. She decided to give luge a try and the adrenaline junky fell in love with the sliding sport from the start.

The determined athlete born out of Calgary’s Olympic legacy took a major step forward in making her dream a reality in 2018 after winning the Canadian Championships and securing her spot on the World Cup squad.  Competing in just her sixth year in the sport, Kyla brings a solid resume acquired while sliding on the youth and junior World Cup circuits with her to the elite league. Today, she is amongst a new generation of young Canadian athletes ready to carry the torch into a new era for Luge Canada.

When not training or competing, Kyla enjoys hiking and adventuring with friends. She has a currency collection, is a lover of cats, and can solve a rubik’s cube in under one minute. The challenge is on!
