SOCIAL FEEDS  

The Coquitlam native had the opportunity to watch the National team athletes perform in 2000, before the Olympics. From that moment, her dream of winning an Olympic gold medal started. The National team athletes not only helped her shape her dream, but also served as role models, a role she finds very rewarding now that she is in that position. Sandy has now been part of the National team since 2006, and has had the chance to take part in the 2009 FINA World Trophy, where she helped Canada win the team event. The feeling of finishing first in the acrobatic routine, seeing the perfect scores in the thematic routine and lastly, hearing the Canadian National anthem play at the end of the competition was something she will never forget. Sandy also took part in the 2010, 2011 and 2012 editions. More recently, she was a member of the team that competed at the 2014 Spain Open and at the 2014 Japan Open. 

Family: Both parents are former national and international underwater hockey players… Getting into the Sport: Fell in love with synchronized swimming when she was 8 by a stroke of luck. She wanted to take dance lessons but couldn’t manage to make them fit in the family schedule so decided to sign up in synchronized swimming instead and her passion started at the first practice and continues to grow day by day.
