Annie Bouchard became a high-level Para cyclist after having started in the discipline in 2011.
According to Bouchard, the sport brings her health and competitiveness. As a young person, she excelled in several sports even before her vision illness was diagnosed. She did figure skating, played golf and badminton. But the bike has always occupied a place of choice.
Since 2015, Annie has been part of the NextGen program on the Canadian Para cycling Team. In 2018, the Bouchard-Gagnon duo won the gold medal at the Défi sportif, in the road race and the time trial.
Bouchard and her guide Évelyne Gagnon won gold in the time trial and silver in the road race at the 2019 Canadian Para cycling championships.
