Andrea Cole

Andrea Cole attends the University of Western Ontario, where she's studying French and English. She plans on taking a one-year diploma course in public relations once she earns her degree.
She is engaged to be married in May 2009. 
Cole began swimming after her mother saw an article about a Paralympic swimmer in the local paper and asked her if she was interested in the sport. She signed up for swimming at age nine and shortly after began competing.
She swims with the London Aquatic Club under Coach Andrew Craven.
At 23, Cole has competed in two Paralympic Games and won three medals: a bronze, a silver and a gold. She won the gold in the 4x100m freestyle relay in a time that remains a world record.

Her hobbies include running, biking, playing squash and reading.
