My name is Carline Muir. I was born October 1, 1987 in Spanish Town, Jamaica. I came to Canada at a young age and loved to run. On the track is where I felt the best and most at home.
After many years of hard work, the help of many coaches, physiotherapists, chiropractors, nutritionists, strength and conditioning coach, mentors and friends I am proud to call myself a Canadian Olympian.
My specialty is the 400m and I have been competing for Canada for almost a decade. I am a multiple junior and senior Canadian national Champion, competing internationally since the age of 17 and was Canada's youngest Track & Field Olympian at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.
I have also represented Canada at the World Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field, The Commonwealth Games winning Bronze in Dehli, and the Pan Am games to name a few.
After missing London 2012 my goal was to remain injury free and qualify for Rio 2016 Olympics which I did after winning the Canadian National Championships for a 6thtime, and helping the Canadian 400m Womens Relay team qualify after finishing 6that the World Relay Championships, Bahamas 2015.
Season 2016 was finally the type of season I have been striving towards. I was on the podium for a number of IAAF Challenge meets, won a number of European track meets and finally broke my PR! However, these successes were tinged with the disappointment of finishing 4th at the Rio Olympics in the Womens 400m. I finished ranked 12thafter reaching the semi finals and ended the season ranked 24thon the IAAF Womens 400m World Rankings.
In addition to Track and Field I completed my BSc in Sports Management at The University of Alberta, Edmonton, and have been lucky enough to be part of a number of modelling shoots and campaigns.
Finally, I have done a number of motivational speaking engagements talking about the benefits of Track and Field with respect to health, discipline, teamwork and personal growth.
