Injuries Kyle injured his foot at the 2004 Cottbus Cup in Germany in early March 2004. The talon bone contusion normally takes 3-9 months to heal. Kyle stuck to rehab and was fully recovered for the 2004 Athens Olympics.
Other Kyle began competing in 1996. It was in 1999 and 2000 that he began to make his mark on the international scene, proving himself on the World Cup circuit to qualify in the Men's program for a second position at the 2000 Olympic Games.

2004 was the first time a Canadian artistic gymnast had won a medal of any color at the Olympic Games. Until Kyle came along, no Canadian had ever finished higher than sixth in an individual artistic gymnastics event final at the Summer Games.

Kyle is now the most successful Canadian world-level medallist in Artistic Gymnastics with 5 medals, two from the 2003 World Championships, one from the 2000 World Cup Final, one from the 2002 World Cup Final and a Gold medal in the Floor at the 2004 Olympic Games. In a near flawless 60-second floor routine, Canada's best-ever gymnast lived up to the enormous expectations placed on his shoulders, winning gold in the eight-man Olympic 2004 final.

Kyle says his mother put him in gymnastics as a child because he was cart-wheeling around the house.

His goal for Melbourne 2006 is a gold medal in the Team, Floor and Vault events and a medal in the Highbar. His sporting goal beyond Melbourne is to help the Canadian team qualify for the 2008 Olympic Games.
