Watch out world, here comes Kaiiana
Hey there, time traveller!

Kaiiana Olivier-Job is three years old and already showing promising signs of being a dedicated student and athlete. Asked to name one of her favourite books, Kaiiana said, with authority “Peter Rabbit!”
She has the entire Peter Rabbit collection and it is not unusual for her to be cuddled up in mom’s or dad’s arms reading her favourite book.
What the future holds athletically for this young lady is still yet to be known, but if mom and dad are any indication, Kaiiana is going to find something she loves to do and become very good at it. Mom Nicole is well known in the Winnipeg squash community, playing at a provincial level and she’s even competed in a number of professional matches in local tournaments. Dad Tevin is a university-level basketball and soccer player who can still be seen out on a court or soccer pitch in our city.
Kaiiana has taken to football and has lots of fun watching games with mom and dad. It is not unusual, while watching a game, for her to scream “You gotta catch it man!” or “Touchdown!”
Game time can be trying for mom and dad when the young princess starts requesting more juice or snacks at crucial times.
Kaiiana lives in the central area of the city with mom and dad. Life is good and Kaiiana is ready to be a role model.
“I have a baby sister. Her name is Milani. She is one.”
Mom, dad, and Kaiiana’s baby sister have a lot of fun going for walks.
“I like to play in the park. I like to jump on trampolines.”
Kaiiana is almost ready to start playing organized sports. Until that day though she is trying to convince her dad to let her go to the gym with him.
“I want to train with my daddy.”
Whatever Kaiiana decides to do with her future, it is sure to be spectacular.
