Name and Twitter handle: Madison Norton – @maddynorton
Occupation (optional): Social Media Coordinator @ REIN™ Canada (@reincanada)

A notable moment on Twitter?

I was trending in Vancouver a couple months ago. Also having one of my favourite bands follow me @OLNband and they don’t follow that many tweeps.

Your best Tweet: Eating lunch. Please retweet.

What did you want to be growing up?

An Olympic track & field star. Running is hard though, so here I am.

If you could have dinner with 1 person (live or dead) who would it be?

Richard Branson – the guy is a bazillionaire and seems pretty level-headed. I think some business coaching/tips from him personally could be hugely beneficial.

Your claim to fame:

I had the opportunity to train at the Calgary Olympic Oval in 2006 alongside long-track speedskating champions like Clara Hughes, Jeremy Wotherspoon, Denny Morrison and Cindy Klassen, as an Own The Podium hopeful for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games. I didn’t make the final cut, but I was one of only 30 athletes selected for the training camp, and the experience showed me how much it takes to be a champion in your sport, on and off the ice.

Do you know of a hidden gem in our city?

The Narrow Pub on Main St. Secret entrance and great drinks. Plus they spin old-school vinyl on request.

If you were a superhero, who would you be and why?

Definitely Iron Man. Being that rich and powerful with such a bad-ass flying suit would be second to none.

If you were a vegetable, what would you be and why?

Cucumber. So versatile. Great with a little salt too.

Recommend a fellow Twitterer that deserves some recognition?

I would love to give a shout out to my buddy BJ Newton (@bjrnewton). He’s new on the Twitter scene and doesn’t have that many followers, but he’s committed to the cause, and his tweets are pretty damn funny.

Describe yourself in 3 words:

Justin Bieber’s Hair(He should describe himself as Maddy Norton’s Hair since I was born first :P)
