Olivia 1Hello, 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.

Peter & OliviaI 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
