 Kaillie Humphries Biography

The only two-time champion in Olympic women’s bobsleigh, Kaillie Humphries is the proud owner of three medals in all, having won bronze at PyeongChang 2018 to go with the golds she won at Vancouver 2010 and Sochi 2014. The Calgary-born driver has also collected nine World Championship medals and won four IBSF World Cup titles – putting together one of the finest career records her sport has ever seen.

Humphries began her international career as a brakewoman, earning a place in the Canadian team for Turin 2006. After parading with the rest of the delegation at the Opening Ceremony, her dreams of competing were dashed when she was informed by team management that she would not be taking part.

Instead of giving up, Humphries began training with brakewoman Heather Moyse, and it was not long before impressive results started to come their way on the world tour. After winning their first FIBT World Cup race at Altenberg in December 2009, they headed to Vancouver 2010 ranked second in the world. On board Canada 1, Humphries and Moyse swept the rest of the field aside, beating the Whistler Sliding Centre start and track records in each of the first three runs to claim a convincing gold.

In becoming the first Canadian woman to win an Olympic bobsleigh title and the first Canadian to win gold in a two-man event, Humphries also secured what was only her country’s second ever bobsleigh crown, 46 years on from Peter Kirby, Doug Anakin and John and Vic Emery’s win in the four-man event at Innsbruck.

The Calgary pilot went on to become the world No1, a status she would retain with various partners. After Moyse moved on, Humphries won the 2011-12 World Cup title with Emily Baadsvik, and then teamed up with Jennifer Ciochetti to land the world title in Lake Placid in February 2012. The following season, this time partnered by Chelsea Valois, she scored an incredible six consecutive World Cup wins, a feat she capped by retaining her world title in St Moritz in January 2013.

In the meantime, Humphries also represented her country at the 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cup and competed in international track cycling events before undergoing hip surgery in 2012. She was reunited with Moyse at the start of the 2013-14 season, with the pair gradually finding their form before delivering a stunning performance at Sochi 2014. Trailing the US pair Elana Meyers and Lauryn Williams going into the fourth and final run, the Canadians produced a scintillating descent to pip their rivals by 0.10 seconds to become the first duo ever to retain the Olympic two-woman title. On January 9, 2016, Humphries became the first woman to drive an all-female team against men in a four-person World Cup bobsled race.

Prior to appearing at her fourth Winter Games, Humphries won the two-woman World Cup crown for a fourth time, triumphing in four of the eight events, with Melissa Lotholz behind her in the first part of the season and Phylicia George taking over brakewoman duties in the second. And it was with George that Humphries would go for Olympic gold again at PyeongChang 2018.

Humphries is affiliated with three main causes, the "I've been Bullied" campaign; "Right to Play", a sports program for underprivileged children and youth; and with the Special Olympics.

In September of 2019, BCS granted Humphries' request to be released from their program, and she began to compete for the United States after Humphries filed harassment complaints against Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton head coach Todd Hays.
