A few weeks ago I was asked to do an interview for the “Girl Tries Life” Podcast!! It was a fun interview about my life as my team and I prepare for the next Olympics in Tokyo in 2020.
For all of the questions I am sure many people are dying to ask an athlete in training, “Girl Tries Life” asks them all!

It’s been a while since I last posted, partly because of training and partly because of my classes at University. It has been a busy 2 months for me and I appreciate your patience!
Now for the fun stuff! My team and I have been working tirelessly in our “free time” to come up with a fundraising tool for the National Team…. SO we are doing a Calendar!
It is a calendar featuring National Team with pictures taken by Jeremie Battaglia, fun facts, quotes and other exciting additions! We want this to feel as if you are experiencing training with us and that YOU are part of the team because, to be honest, the fans are the most important part in keeping this sport alive!
Our Calendar will be available for pre-order on December 1st!! More information on where to find the form etc, coming soon!!
Please share this info and help our team achieve our goal!!

“Synchronised swimming is for girls. It’s for girls who can run a 400 metre sprint while holding their breath, and smiling. Perfect dives beyond the sequins and mascara to follow the Canadian synchronised swimming team through the most gruelling year of their lives as they battle for a spot at Rio 2016. This team of elite athletes will do whatever it takes to make it. They’ll suffer concussions, smashed vertebrae, fractured feet, broken noses, black eyes and dislocated knees. That’s because synchronised swimming is as much of a contact sport as football.
“You go out there, you kill. This is war,” trainer Meng Chen tells her girls before they compete. The biggest challenge for Team Canada is not their choreography nor their synchronicity, but their diversity. In a conservative sport like synchronised swimming, the definition of perfection is sameness. But Team Canada represents the country’s cultural diversity, which makes them the underdogs. The only way they’ll have a chance at their Olympic dream is to outswim and outperform the competition with a routine that totally blows the judges out of the water.
With unprecedented access to the team and their trainer, Perfect follows this determined, strong and hard working group of women in their quest to make it to the Olympics. From Montreal to Bratislava, Kazan and Rio, battling eating disorders, dislocated knees and crushing losses, these girls never give up. And more importantly, they never stop smiling.” – Description of “Perfect”
