Alexandra Bruce made her first appearance at an Olympic Games in 2012 and competed in the women’s doubles Badminton event with partner Michelle Li. The duo finished just off of the podium in fourth place.
They earned gold at the 2011 Pan American Games in Mexico, adding to a national championship from earlier in the year. Together, they would go on to win a total of nine tournaments in 2011.
In 2010, Li and Bruce reached the final at both the senior and U-23 nationals. Bruce would also win the U-23 mixed doubles Canadian national championship with partner Martin Giuffre.
Li and Bruce’s first major medal as a team came at the 2009 Nationals — a silver.
