 For nearly 25 years, Janice McCaffrey has been a competitive racewalker. The mother of two -- Scott, 14 and Jamie, 12 -- is headed to her third Games in Sydney after placing 25th in Barcelona and Atlanta. One of the oldest members of the Canadian track team, she has also raced at three Commonwealth Games. In 1994 at Victoria, she became the first Canadian to win a medal in the 10 kilometre event at those Games.

  She was introduced to racewalking because her sister's wedding interfered with her running event at the 1981 Canada Summer Games. Instead she trained for a racewalking event that was held earlier.

  Since 1997 she is a self-employed psychologist and workshop facilitator.
