National 13-15 Team set for success at Comen Cup
August 4, 2009 - After an intensive training camp in Quebec City, Canada’s 13 – 15 National Team is in Belgrade, Serbia poised for synchro success at the 2009 Comen Cup, which officially begins tomorrow and runs through August 9.
The 13-15 National Team is Synchro Canada’s youngest group of swimmers, many of whom will go on to represent Canada at international competitions for years to come. This year’s team members are Sarah Brunin-Brouillette (Quebec), Claudia Holzner (Alberta), Jacqueline Simoneau (Quebec), Gabriella Brisson (Alberta), Jordan Field (Ontario), Catherine Dee (Quebec), Camille Rémillard (Quebec), Mathilde Sauvé (Quebec), Carlie Cholette (Quebec), Anne-Marie Chouinard (Quebec), Natasha Bernier (Quebec), and Gabrielle Boisvert (Quebec).
Brunin-Brouillette will also represent Canada in the solo competition. She will be joined by Holzner, and alternate Brisson, to vie for the top spot in the duet event. All team members will compete in the compulsory figures event.
“This is an exciting new era for our sport in Canada,” says Synchro Canada’s Chief Operating Officer Catherine Gosselin-Despres. “Our National AA Team swam well and earned two medals at the World Championships this summer, and we know that this 13-15 Team is equally poised for podium finishes, not just at this meet, but also beyond.”
Chantal Vallières, who has worked with the 13-15 National Team for the past four years, leads the team as Head Coach, along with Assistant Coaches Elena Podolsky and Khadija Cutcher.
The Canadian delegation also consists of Team Leader Kristen Brawley and Canadian official Josée Daudelin.
