Figure Skater Grants A Sick Child's Wish

August 10, 2016

Today in Warsaw, Poland, 13 year-old Olivia Oliver from Nova Scotia, Canada, donated and presented her Guinness World Record Figure Skate and Certificate to a young girl who has spina bifida.

Last year 9 year-old Weronika saw Olivia break the Guinness World Record for the fastest spinner on ice skates at the National Stadium. Olivia decided to go back to Warsaw to make Weronika’s wish come true - which was to personally meet Olivia - before she goes back to hospital for another difficult operation on her spine.

“Weronika has had many painful surgeries. I can’t help cure her but I want her to know that she must keep fighting and never give up and that I’m with her all the way”, said Olivia.

The presentation meeting was a beautiful moment.
