Hi, I’m Tyrell and I am 16 years old.  I have been involved in track since I was 10.  I started  as  sprinter/long jumper and then tried hurdles and loved them.  I have been hurdling since grade 7 and hold a few Athletics Ontario records.
I also started dance at my school, which has an amazing dance program, in grade 9.  My Mom encouraged me to dance for flexibility and cross training, but I fell in love with dance too.  Now I have 2 passions!  I train for track 3 days a week and I dance 2 days.  I also do a little lifting at the gym.  
My family and I also made the choice to become vegans in December of 2015.  We did it for ethical, environmental and health reasons.  I feel a lot healthier since we made this choice as I can no longer eat fast food or chocolate!
