Favorite Sport Memory:
Standing on the podium last summer in Serbia watching the Canadian flag being raised. I have never been so proud to be Canadian! Being a part of the Women’s 4x100m Medley World record breaking relay. To share this moment with three other amazing girls is the highlight of my swimming career so far.
