Kenny M'Pindou

Birth Date:May. 9, 1995 (age 29)
Birth Place:Montreal, QC
Residence:Edmonton, AB

Kenny comes to Canada’s bobsleigh community after playing competitive soccer.  Dreaming of playing at a high level for a career, Kenny battled through several knee injuries and rehabbing to continue chasing after opportunities. 

His last stint was in Sintra, Portugal where he was on trial with 1 Dezembro FC in 2020, but had to return to Canada due to a rise in COVID cases and borders closing. It was at this time that Kenny began looking for a few sporting opportunities as he still had competitive juices.

He attended the Canadian Bobsleigh Prospect Camp in October 2021, and was then selected to proceed further into the selection process in Whistler. Unfortunately, he didn’t get the opportunity to race that year after dealing with another injury that required knee surgery. 

He did have a new-found passion for bobsleigh and was determined to come back and make the National Team. Staying healthy, Kenny was finally named to the National Bobsleigh Program in 2022 where he is continuing his development. 

His most memorable moment to date in the sport is sliding with Olympians Christopher Spring and Taylor Austin. 

Kenny’s hero is his dad and credits his parents for all they have provided him and seeing the sacrifices they’ve made and challenges they’ve been through but continuing to persevere is one of the reasons he keeps striving towards his goals with a no quit attitude.
