Oliver is 1 of the 32,000 kids that we've supported with sport registration fees for the past 21 years and we're thrilled to be a part of his journey.
Moving to Canada in ‘94 with his family as they fled the Yugoslav Wars, The Vikalo family didn’t have a lot of funds to put their kids into sport. After finding out about KidSport Calgary, Oliver was placed into water polo- a popular sport back home. Time in the pool at a young age helped Oliver become the athlete he is today and has provided him with the opportunity to play for Canada on the Men’s National Water Polo Team.
