Hello, my name is Olivia Rybicka-Oliver. I’m a 16 year old Ice Dancer, Guinness World Record Holder, Scotiabank Community Hero & Canadian Champions Fund Grant Recipient. I was born in Poland and I live in Barrie, Ontario, Canada.
I have Canadian, Polish & British nationality and I speak English, Polish & French.
My home club is Miejski Klub Łyżwiarski in Łódź but I train full time at the Mariposa International Training Center with my ice dance partner Peter Paleev.
My journey to get this far has been exciting…
On January 19, 2015, at the National Stadium in Warsaw, Poland, I broke the Guinness World Record for the fastest spin on ice. My record speed was timed at 342 RPM and I broke the previous world record set in 2006 by 34 RPM! (Watch HERE)
In 2016 I received the SCOTIABANK Young Community Hero Award. This award was presented to me, on behalf of Scotiabank, for my achievements, during a time-out interval in front of a packed hockey stadium.
Through my profile and my skating I am able to help my favourite cause - which is making wishes come true for the children from Fundacja Dziecieca Fantazja in Poland who are suffering from terminal illnesses or life-limiting conditions.
To date I have raised over $30,000 for the wishes of these less fortunate children.Thank You, Olivia
