Genevieve Ouellet

A former national team para-swimmer, Geneviève Ouellet is in her fourth season with the Canadian para-cycling team. At the 2008 Paralympics in Beijing, Ouellet and pilot Émilie Roy won a bronze medal in the road race and added two more bronze at the 2010 world championships. At last year’s World Cup in Segovia, Spain, they were third in the time trial.

Ouellet started cycling in 2007, because she was intrigued by tandem cycling and felt it was a good sport for athletes with a visual impairment. She loves the team aspect of the sport, the variety in the training and attacking the various courses around the world.

The biggest influence in her career was her first pilot, Mathilde Hupin, who showed her she could be successful in the sport if she worked hard.

Ouellet earned a Masters in Kinesiology from Université Laval in 2011.
