Krista Is A True Canadian Hero and Rowing Legend

On March 9th, 2024, as Krista went to open a jar of pickles, she broke her arm. This seemingly routine act would later confirm that her breast cancer from 2022 had returned, now in her bones. Upon further private testing Krista was diagnosed with stage four cancer, which includes six lesions from her head to her waist.

Krista is a true Canadian hero and rowing legend—she is two-time Olympian and Silver Olympic medalist in the 2012 Women's 8. 


This mother of two needs your support in this epic battle to save her life.

Krista Guloien Temple

Accomplished and resilient.

Krista is known for her strong work ethic, reliability, and natural ability in rowing. She earned the title Canadian National athlete and held it for over a decade, during which she found herself in the role of team leader by inspiring and motivating her colleagues.

 

Her hard work and determination paid off when she won a silver medal for Canada in the women eight competition in August 2012.

 

Krista's impressive accomplishments in rowing at various levels have established her as one of the most accomplished female rowers in Canadian history.

A Passionate Rower & Team Leader

A Dreamer and A Do-er

In 2001, Krista discovered her love for rowing when she enrolled in a learn-to-row program at Simon Fraser University. Her admiration for Canadian rowers Silken Laumann and Marnie McBean inspired her to pursue her dream of competing in the Olympics. After finishing her studies at SFU, Krista joined the National Team in Ontario and rapidly climbed the ranks. 

 

In 2008, she participated in her first Olympics, an impressive achievement that highlighted her remarkable progress in the sport.

In 2012, she brought home the Silver Medal in the Women's 8 for Team Canada. It was an absolutely brilliant experience that let her move forward as a champion of her sport.

A Powerful, Engaging and Passionate Role Model

Inspiring and inspired.

Krista is an outstanding example for young athletes, dedicating countless hours to educate, coach, and mentor them. In addition to her coaching, she generously donates her time to several community events and charitable causes.

 

Krista has recently joined an organization called Her Time.  The Her Time girls program takes a strengths-based approach to empower young females to stay safe and healthy while achieving remarkable things in their lives. The foundational pillars of the Her Time program are organized into a playbook that focuses on positive relationships, healthy living, financial independence, goal setting and personal safety.
