Biography: Steve Giles is a world champion and has the gold medal from the 1998 Senior World Championships to prove it. During the 16 years he spent with Canada’s canoe/kayak team, he competed in the Senior World Championships seven times, also winning two bronze— one in 1993 and one in 2002. These victories were all in single competitor events, as was Steve’s gold-medal win at the 1999 Pan American Games.

Giles has represented Canada in not one, but four Olympic Games— 1992, 1996, 2000, and 2004— placing in the top eight each time. At the 2000 Games in Sydney, he claimed a bronze in the single canoe 1000-metre event.

Steve Giles retired after the 2004 Athens Olympics and became a full-time electrical engineer.
