Marcoux_Audrey_2Audrey Marcoux’s Olympic dream began in 2010 after she was told about the 2015 Pan Am Games and how they serve as an Olympic qualifier. She had never before realized it would be possible to go to the Games, but the more she has played and trained, the more she believes her Olympic dream is possible. In 2014 she helped Canada to a third place finish in the North American Zone of the IHF Trophy. Playing with Sherbrooke in the Circuit Quebecois D1 last season she scored 50 times in 14 games and her club finished in fifth place.
