Dawn Birley was Gallaudet’s national champion athlete

Dawn Birley pulled an Iron Woman stunt while
attending Gallaudet classes during the
late 1990’s. She was always playing a varsity
sport, and practicing TaeKwonDo with the
national Canadian (hearing) Olympic team,
while maintaining her grades – all at the same
time. In TaeKwonDo, she won several Canadian
national championship titles and twice took
part in the world championships, and at
one time, was 5th ranked performer in the
world. She missed out on Olympics only
because Canada was not invited to take part
in these TaeKwonDo events (Olympics politics).
