Welcome to My Personal Blog, Adrea~Made!
My name is Adrea Propp and I am a Canadian 800m athlete. I grew up on the prairies of Regina, SK and after graduation in 2015 from the University of Regina, was recruited to Victoria, BC in Fall 2015 to join the Athletics Canada West Hub as a full-time 800m runner. After four years as an amateur athlete and helping bring Coach Heather Hennigar’s vision of a high performance training group at the Hub, Vic City Elite was established. It was an amazing four years calling Victoria home, and I am beyond grateful for the experiences and significant growth I had as both a person and an athlete. It was a necessary chapter for me to: fill my tool belt with skills, development, experience, network, and exposure to high performance sport.
After a brave decision to follow my heart, in Fall 2019 I made the decision to go back to my roots and move training back home to Regina, SK. It was important for my daily environment to be surrounded by family, friends and my coach and mentor Al, who I have that magic connection with. With my tool belt equipped and my heart full, I am excited to be training and actively building my 2020 vision into a reality.
As of Jan. 8, 2020 I am currently Identified by Canadian Olympic Committee on the Long-List of athlete’s to be potentially selected to the Olympic Team.
The Criteria to Stamp my Ticket to the Tokyo Olympic Games:
- Race Olympic Standard or Faster (1:59.50)
- Place Top 2 at Nationals
- Score Well on World Athletics with Consistent, Fast Performances
There are still numerous lessons for me to learn in the upcoming months and I welcome you to stay tuned as my 2020 Tokyo journey continues!
My Goals + Philosophy = My Why I run:
My Goals As an Athlete:
- Represent Canada as an Olympic Finalist at 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games
- Run a sub 1:59.50 in the 800m race and achieve Olympic Standard.
My Philosophy As a Person:
- Authentically living out my why to be the best version of my Self being genuinely kind in my process.
- Recognizing the power of today, and that I, and all others are worthy of success and greatness
The daily opportunity to be and achieve Greatness- both as a person and an athlete. Ultimately, my Why is pro-actively making the choice to live my life as a journey in the pursuit to be, and facilitate greatness.
