    William Dutton is an Olympic speed skater and multiple World Cup Medalist.  William's home town of Humboldt Saskatchewan gave him all of the opportunities he needed to get his speed skating career started but after his medal performance at the 2007 Canada winter games he decided to pack his bags and move to Calgary.   Calgary is considered one of the best speed skating training facilities in the world and allowed him to train on ice full time to pursue his Olympic dreams. After living in Calgary for 11 years, William now considers it home and he plans to continue his support for Kid Sport Calgary while he finishes his Kinesiology degree at University of Calgary.

    William chose to be a KidSport ambassador so that he could help create opportunities in sport for all kids.  William believes that sport helps build confidence from a young age and improves both mental and physical health in children.  

    "Sports are fun, and everyone deserves to have fun!  That is at the core, why I support KidSport Calgary.” - William Dutton
