Sophie has been one of Canada's top Freestyle swimmers for almost a decade, although it has been a career fraught with injury and illness which indicates there is no lack of fight and courage within her.

She now swims full time with the Rough & Or team under the guidance of Nicholas Perron.

She raced at the 1996 Olympics as an 18-year-old and was regarded as one of Canada's rising stars in the sport before being struck down with a back injury.

She is currently finishing her MBA at the University Laval in Quebec City.
