Tamara Tatham

2-Time Canadian Olympic Athlete

Toronto born basketball champion, Tamara Tatham embodies passion, drive and athleticism. The best advice that she was given at a young age has become the words she commits to living by every day, “You have to work for what you want. Things will never be handed to you. Go out and get it!” She has used this same ambition to take her career to new heights and beyond.
