41 (2)Hello, my name is Olivia Rybicka-Oliver. I’m a 15 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.

I train full time at the Mariposa International Training Center and I am fully committed and determined to succeed in Ice Dance at the highest level.

32 (2)I am focussed and training hard with my amazing new partner Peter Paleev and our great coaches and we’re looking forwards to a winning relationship.

My journey so far has been exciting…

Olivia Oliver 1In 2015 I became the Provincial and Atlantic Canada Juvenile Free Skate Champion before making the switch to Ice Dance. I had always dreamed of combining my two passions – skating and dance.

Olivia 1 (2)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.

FDF_logo_convertedThrough 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.

1I also donated my Guinness World Record Figure Skate & my Guinness Certificate to 9 year-old Weronika, who has spina bifida, to make her wish come true. “Keep fighting Weronika and never give up”. 

Thank You, Olivia
