Additional information

CANADIAN FIRST
On Olympic debut at London 2012, first Canadian woman to qualify for the javelin final since 1968. (olympic.ca, Nov 2017)


GLASGOW ADVENTURE
Fifth on Commonwealth Games debut at Glasgow 2014. "I loved the vibe of the Games and village. I had four roommates and we had such a blast hanging out." (Athlete, Nov 2017)


CONSISTENT
"I've been frustrated the last two years. To me, consistent means 'not improving'. In 2016, I had a pre-season injury that affected my performance, and in 2017 I kept trying to 'kill it' instead of letting the throw 'happen'. This year, the goal is to stay healthy and relaxed." (Athlete, Nov 2017)


CHANGES
Moved on from her previous coach of six years, Lawrence STEINKE (CAN), to Laurier PRIMEAU (CAN) in 2017. "I'm looking forward to seeing my technical changes come to fruition in 2018." (Athlete, Nov 2017)
