An extremely active child, Amelie participated in a number of sports group up including golf, soccer, hockey, tennis, alpine skiing and mountain biking. But it was in the summer of 2001 that her father asked her to try a triathlon. The father-daughter duo took a road trip together where Amelie raced in the under-nine category at the Trois-Rivières triathlon. Immediately – she was hooked.
Amelie registered for the Trianord Triathlon Club where she trained a couple of times a week, but it was when she was 15 that she cranked up her development and train seriously. Growing into the junior category, Amelie joined up with coach Kyla Rollinson for four years, who she credits for her early success in the sport. This winter, Amelie moved to Guelph to join the Regional Training Centre and work with Craig Taylor, where she is part of a dynamic group of athletes and a great training environment.
Despite being relatively young, Amelie has a number of accomplishments in the sport. She was named Athlete-of-the-Year by Triathlon Quebec in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2012. She was also named elite junior of the year in 2012 by Triathlon Canada Magazine. Amelie was also nominated for a Maurice Award at the 2013 Sports Québec Gala, as Female Athlete National Level.
Outside of sport, Amelie really enjoys cooking and fishing. She also likes to spend time with my family and friends. Amelie went to a private high school named Académie Lafontaine. After high school she did two years of CEGEP in pure sciences, and then moved to Guelph to start her post-secondary studies in nutrition
