Athlete Profile

My name is Ryder Hardy and I’m a grade 10 student at Marion Graham Collegiate. I was born in 2004, and for the past 6 years I’ve been a part of the Riversdale track team doing sprints and long jump. I joined the club at age 10, originally to help me improve my hockey. Doug taught me the basics and eventually hockey became secondary to track and field. Besides hockey, I enjoy waterskiing and I am currently working to complete my grade 8 piano exam.

I had a tough year in 2018, as the season started with my Graves’ Disease diagnosis and recovery. It took many months of hard work to regain strength and fitness, and I didn’t perform as well as I wanted to that season. As a result, I was quite discouraged, but in 2019 everything changed. My performances soared throughout the year, and as the year went on, I began to focus on my season end goal of Legion Nationals. Legion Nationals, which were last August in Nova Scotia, definitely ended up being my highlight of the year. I finished with 4 silver medals, 2 personal bests, and 2 Sask records. My perseverance and hard work paid off, and I was able to finish the season on a high note. The whole experience has shown me ups and downs are a part of sport, but believing in yourself is most important.
