Rio 2016 Olympic Games
Growing up I really looked up to my parents because of everything they did day in and out. However, the few years before the Olympics, I was constantly inspired by the girls I trained with leading up to the Olympics. They taught me most of the things I know about swimming.
My biggest supporters were my mum and my dad. My mum would always be at every single meet and cheering louder than anyone and filming all my races. It was so much fun. My dad would drive me to every practice, wait for my practices to be done, then drive me to school and back to practice every day.
My most memorable accomplishment was turning around after the 100 freestyle in Rio. I was expecting to be dead last, but when I was scanning the rankings, I realized that I actually came first!
Being Canadian means having one big family. I feel so honoured to be able to represent Canada all the time because I know I’ll constantly have the support of my Canadian family.
