Three-time Olympian Andréanne Morin won a silver medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games after finishing fourth in 2008 and seventh in 2004 in the women’s eight.
The Quebec native is a three-time World Championships medallist in the eight, winning back-to-back silvers in 2010 and 2011, and a bronze in 2003. A seven-time World Championships team member (five senior, two junior), Morin’s first senior international race was in the 2001 World Cup, where the women’s eight finished 7th.
A skiing accident to her right leg derailed Morin from a competitive career as an alpine skier so she switched to rowing in 1996. She was appointed to the World Anti-Doping Agency Athlete (WADA) Committee in 2011 and currently sits on the athlete’s commission for the Canadian Olympic Committee.
Born in Vanier, Q.C., Morin attended Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, New Hampshire, USA and went on to graduate in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Economy from Princeton University, where she was the 2006 NCAA rowing champion. Morin is currently pursuing a Law degree at the Université de Montréal.
