Additional information

NEW PARTNER
Teammate of 11 years Roseline FILLION (CAN), with whom she took bronze in women’s 10m synchro at Rio 2016 Olympic Games, retired in January 2017. Started new partnership with Caeli McKAY (CAN) who is 10 years younger. "She thought of me as more of an idol, but now I keep telling her that I'm not her idol any more, I'm her synchro partner." (cbc.ca, 24 Feb 2017)


GREEN ENERGY
With diving partner, Roseline FILION (CAN), used green-coloured water in Rio 2016 pool as a positive. "The fact it was green actually helped because it is a visual sport. The fact that it was completely different from the sky helped us." (sports.yahoo.com, 10 Aug 2016)

HIGHLIGHT
Team Canada's flagbearer at the Opening Ceremony of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. "I can't wait to live that special moment with the entire Canadian delegation. Marching with a group of inspiring athletes, with whom I share dreams and a common passion for sport, is an amazing feeling. It is a great responsibility to lead the team into the stadium, but also an incredible honour that will forever be one of the top highlights of my career." (newswire.ca, 27 Feb 2018)
