“Tracy is one of the greatest female OCAA athletes of all time, and beyond that has consistently excelled academically,” said Michael Kopniak, who coached Wong for her first three seasons at Humber.

The 2013 and 2014 CCAA Player of the Year and four-time CCAA All-Canadian has been just as impressive in the classroom. She is currently completing her degree in Kinesiology to go along with her diploma in Health and Fitness. Wong is also a regular honour-roll student.

Wong is hopeful that her FISU Games experience will give her a leg up on the field. She has competed against Olympic athletes before and will be headed to South Korea with lofty expectations for herself.
