Originally from Calgary, AB, Kevin Jagger, the youngest of four brothers, grew up in Vancouver and attended Vancouver College. Named Lower Mainland Student-Athlete of the Year upon graduation, Jagger lettered in four varsity sports with the Fighting Irish (football, basketball, rowing and track & field).
 
He attended McGill University where he played football for the Redmen. After graduating from the Desautels Faculty of Management with a Finance degree and Distinction honors, he spent three years with Citigroup as an Investment Banking Analyst.

Watching the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, Jagger was inspired to get out from behind the cubicle and try to compete again in the hopes of one day representing Canada.

So...he quit his job and is now training full time to become a member of Canada's National Long Track Speed Skating Team despite having never tried the sport!

In August of 2010, Kevin skated his first 500m race in a time of 44.54 seconds. The world record is 34.03. This site is meant to act as a chronicle of Kevin's journey as he works towards narrowing that gap.
