One of Canada's top female track and field performers for many years,
100-metre hurdler Katie Anderson heads to her fourth straight Olympics in
Sydney. After solid performances in Seoul and Barcelona (top-13 finishes),
she struggled four years ago in Atlanta. However she rebounded the
following season placing sixth at the world championships in Athens, the
best international result of her career. She is currently pursuing a
masters degree in psychology at a U.S. college. She moved to Canada in
1975 and switched from sprinting to hurdling in 1992. She holds six
separate Canadian marks.
