This is the ending to the perfect story…
We started this year at the bottom. Beginning again with a new group of girls and new challenges. We jumped around ideas and routines, trying to find the perfect way to showcase our strengths.
We were the underdogs. Trying to make a name for ourselves as we competed around the world. Germany, France, Japan, Spain, and Canada. Every swim we had together taught us something, another piece to our special puzzle.
We learnt that no one is safe. No matter how good you swim, you could be the next one off the team. We overcame internal struggles and worked together to keep each other positive. We trained hard for this one weekend of the year, World Cup.
I am so proud to be a part of this team. We fought so hard to be here today and to be the team we are. We have been a team that improves, step-by-step. We are not done yet!! We have 2 years before the Olympic Games. I believe, and we believe that our team will be representing Canada at the Games! We still have a way to go, but we are on the right track!
Time to have a couple days of holiday before we come back to the grind!! Enjoy ladies!!! Love you! xoxo
Yesterday we had a great day. We started the competition off with a bang! A good swim of our brand new Highlight Routine, debuting a fun swim for the audience to enjoy.
The stakes were pretty high in the Technical Routine. We had a little blimp in the routine, something we did not expect. We know that we did not have the swim we want, but we are totally ready to show the world that we can and will achieve our goal.
I would like to let all of you know that we really appreciate your support these last couple days. It’s been a journey and we have learned a lot.
Tonight is a new chance, a new day to show you all what we are capable of!! The Team is on the same page and we are ready to swim our heart out! Free Routine is going to be a show for sure!! Tonight we are going to perform, and make you all proud! We are ready!
Here we go!!! Today is the 1st day of competition here at the World Cup in Quebec City!! We have been working so hard to achieve our goals for this year and from the feedback we have been given, we are on the right track!! It’s going to be an amazing couple of days and I have a feeling that Canada is going to rock it!

Hey Everyone!! Hope you are all having a fantastic Wednesday, and wishing you a great week… Now to the good stuff!!
Today marks 1 week and 2 days before we start competing at World Cup!! We’ve made so many leaps these last couple of weeks! This team, these girls; are family. Working with them every day can’t get much better. All of our obstacles, goals, triumphs are dealt with together, as one unit! We are almost there, it’s so close we can taste it! I am so proud to be working with these ladies. All of the pieces are finally coming together and soon we will impress the world at the Cup!
Today we shared our routines to spectators for this years competition. We had Open Training for an hour, to let our audience see what we do on a daily basis and then ended the day with a Demo. During our swims, we had Toronto Media come to support us and the new 2015 Toronto Pan Am Aquatic Centre, which has been a fantastic facility for us to be training at.
Also in attendance, Scott Russell, CBC Sport broadcaster who has 11 Olympic Games under his belt, came out to show us some love!! His inspiring words of wisdom gave us chills before swimming our last event of the day! He shared with us his passion and made us believe that we are capable of everything!! It made today even more special having an Olympic Broadcaster introduce our team and every member that has worked so hard to get us to where we are!
In closing, THANK YOU to everyone who participated in today’s event. We are so blessed to have your love and support! Keep cheering for us at the World Cup and for the next 2 years going toward the Olympics in Rio!!
