We will start things off with Janelle Ball! Here’s what she has to say:
Hey everyone ! 🙂
So those who know anything about me know I’m terrible with social media (and email :p), but here I am creating my very own post to present myself! Pretty amazing haha
My name is Janelle, I am 24 years old, and I was born and raised in Montreal. I started my swimming career in the West Island Outdoor pool system as a 6 year old at Glenmore Pool, and quickly took up winter synchro at Dollard Synchro, where I swam from the age of 6 to 18. Growing up, I was able to train and compete at an elite level year round, while going to school thanks to the amazing Jrhs Sport-Etudes program.
This is my 6th season at the Centre of Excellence, and the I have had many amazing opportunities to travel and compete internationally representing Canada.
Most recently, I took part in the Olympic Qualifier in Rio de Janeiro. Thinking about the support we felt from our country leading up to that competition still gives me goosebumps.
A couple random things about me…
My favourite colour is pink, I am fluent in sarcasm, and I love tiny dogs (yes, the kind that many people consider to be rats).

Thanks for taking a couple minutes out of your day to get to know me a bit better 🙂
