Monika Burgess was awarded $1,500 in October 2012 thereby becoming the first recipient of funding under KSA's Athletic Excellence Program. (Monika had previously received a KSA travel grant in 2011.) 

In January 2012, after her training session at the National Winter Training Camp in Montreal, Monika competed in the Commonwealth Championships in Cardiff where she won silver in the Sr and bronze in the Jr (U20).

Travel in April 2012 included trips to St Petersburg (Russia) and Taravisio (Italy) for European Cup competitions. 

Monika's 2012 accomplishments also included winning bronze at the Canadian Sr Women's Championships in the 63 kgm division and silver in the U20 age group. In August she represented Canada at the European Cup in Prague (U20) where she won bronze and also competed in Berlin (European Cup).
