A native of Montréal, Québec, Andréanne has travelled around the world with her oars and boats representing Canada. From her early days as a junior rower in Ottensheim, Austria (1998) through two Olympic Games (Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008), Andréanne has visited countries and discovered local cultures from their waterways! She now has her sights set on the London 2012 Games and, with relentless work and commitment, wants to create another chance to achieve that medal that narrowly escaped her in 2008!
As a graduate from Princeton University, and now taking a leave of absence from the Law Faculty at l’Université de Montréal, rowing has often been a complement to Andréanne’s academic endeavours. The months leading up to the London Games, however, are strictly dedicated to training and rowing. Her posts focus on the excitement and thrills experienced during the countdown to the London Olympics with the gruelling workouts and challenges of achieving that ambition.
