Sarah Brunin-Brouillette announces her retirement
Synchro Canada would like to thank and congratulate its newly retired athlete Sarah Brunin-Brouillette (Laval, QC) who announced her retirement last week.
An athlete of remarkable perseverance and determination, Sarah came back from a hip injury that required arthroscopic surgery and kept her away from the competition in 2011 and 2012 to make the National Team in 2013. "One of the happiest days of my life was September 19th when the Centre called to tell me that I had made the team. It was the best gift possible for all my hard work through the bumps and the hills."
Ultimately, it is that same hip condition that is forcing Sarah to retire. "Be assured," she says, "that if it wasn’t for my health condition, I would swim for many more years."
A member of the Junior National Team in 2010 and 2011, she represented Canada at the 2010 FINA World Junior Championships where she won a bronze medal in the team event. She was also a member of the 13-15 National Team where she won a gold medal in 2008 and a bronze medal in 2009 in the team event.
"Even though I am retiring, I aspire to transmit my love and passion for the sport to younger athletes," added Sarah. "I learned so much about the sport and myself. I have not only found out the kind of athlete I wanted to be, but also the kind of person I wanted to be."
