Camille Bérubé

 

Camille Bérubé was a consistent presence on the Canadian national team in 2015, winning one silver and two bronze medals at the Toronto 2015 Parapan American Games.

In 2014, Camille Bérubé lowered her Canadian record in the 100-m backstroke in the S8 classification in 2014 for the eighth time in five years. She clocked one minute and 23.73 seconds at the Para Pan Pacific Swimming Championships, the biggest event of the year, held in Pasadena, California. In addition, Bérubé used her backstroke skills to lead-off Canada’s bronze medal performance in the 4X100-m medley relay.

At the 2013 IPC World Championships in Montreal she reached the final in her four events. She was seventh in the 200-m individual medley (improving her personal best time by seven seconds), the 400-m freestyle and 100-m freestyle. She also came eighth in the 100-m backstroke, breaking her two-year-old Canadian record.

Bérubé was one of Canada’s busiest swimmers at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, competing in five events. She was 11th in the 100-metre backstroke, 200-m individual medley and 400-m freestyle as well as 15th in the 100-m butterfly and 16th in the 100-m freestyle.

Competing in the S8 category, she has a disability in both legs caused from having cancer at birth. She started swimming at age eight because she wanted to be involved in a sport.
