Caroline Bisson (translated from French to English): “I think the most important thing for all athletes is to follow their heart. It is important to take the time each year at the beginning of the season to clearly define what it is that I want. What do I get from it personally? What is this adventure going to offer me? And to really take the time to listen to your heart."

Sonja Gaudet: “Well, sport is a very important tool that teaches us some incredible life lessons. You know, it builds confidence, courage. It takes a lot of determination and builds perseverance and it really creates a sense of belonging. And so, sport's that tool we can go back to and really utilize to reach those goals and strive for excellence through sport.”
