Ottawa, December 5, 2014 – Synchro Canada would like to thank and congratulate its newly retired athlete Chloe Isaac (Brossard, QC) who announced her retirement this week.
Chloé was introduced to synchronized swimming at the age of 7 in 1998. While she loved to play in the family pool in summer with her friends, the athlete, born in Monvilliers, France, received a flyer one day from the local club in Laval, which pushed her to try the sport.
Living now in Brossard, QC, Chloé Isaac has been part of Synchro Canada’s senior National Team since 2009 and a symbol of Canadian excellence in synchronized swimming for many years.
In 2008 at the World Junior Championships, Chloe won a silver medal in the solo event, a bronze medal in the duet event, and a fourth place in the figures event. In 2012, she was part of the Canadian Olympic team that finished 4th at the London Olympic Games.
She also represented Canada at the 2013, 2011 and 2009 FINA World Aquatic Championships where she won 2 bronze medals in the combo events. In 2010, Chloé won a gold medal in the duet event at the Commonwealth Games and the silver medal in the duet event and two bronze medals in the team and combo events at the 2010 FINA World Cup. She was also part of the winning Canadian Team at the 2009 FINA World Trophy.
“Today, I announce my retirement from synchronized swimming”, said Isaac. “I retire from the sport with my head held high even though I didn’t necessarily reach all the very high goals I had set for myself. I’ve worked really hard these past years and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who have supported me through the journey, especially my parents.”
“I’ve made the transition to full-time student and I’m very happy to be able to put all my efforts into my Environmental Design studies at UQAM in Montreal. I’m very grateful for everything the sport has taught me.”
“We congratulate and thank Chloe Issac for her outstanding career as an elite synchronized swimmer in Canada,” stated Synchro Canada’s CEO Jackie Buckingham. “Chloe is truly a bright star in our list of distinguished national competitors and her numerous captivating performances will be remembered by both fans and those involved in the sport for a long time.”
