Nataliya Leshko is the first female athlete nominated to represent Canada at the Formula Kite Women’s World Championships in Sardinia from October 8 – 16, 2022. She will also be representing Canada at the Formula Kite Women’s European Championships in Greece from September 25 – October 2, 2022.

A disciplined, non-traditional competitor, Nataliya accelerated her training in 2020 to competitive-level kitefoiling from recreational kiteboarding. Prior to sailing, Nataliya competed on both the varsity novice rowing and dragon boat teams for the University of Toronto, where she graduated with honours from Rotman Commerce. She is currently working full-time in banking while pursuing her dream of representing Canada in the 2024 Olympics. 

Nataliya is honoured to represent Sail Canada internationally as their inaugural Women’s Formula Kite Class competitor. The first sailor in her family and a naturalized citizen of Canada, Nataliya emigrated with her family from Ukraine to Toronto as a young child. A proud member of Ontario Sailing (Maple Leaf Kite Group), she is a strong advocate for improving inclusive, equitable access to recreational and competitive watersports for people from all walks of life. As both a kiteboarding instructor and a competitive athlete, Nataliya takes the privilege of being a Canadian ambassador very seriously both on, and off, the water. She hopes her increased visibility inspires more women, girls and other under-represented athletes to discover the therapeutic aspects of wind sports.
