Christine Girard_1340px A two-time Olympian, Christine Girard captured bronze in 2012 in the women’s weightlifting 63kg division four years after finishing fourth in Beijing and missing out on a medal by a narrow three kilogram margin.

Girard captured gold at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico to improve on her second place finish from 2007. Girard also had a top-10 finish at the 2011 World Championships in Paris, France.

A two-time Commonwealth Games medallist (2002 clean and jerk bronze, 2006 silver), Girard trains in a weight room that doubles as the garage of her home and was introduced to weightlifting at age nine, following her older sister Caroline into the sport.

Weightlifting runs in the Girard family. Her father, Gaétan, was president of the Héraclès Weightlifting Club, her mother Aline Gaudet and older sister Sylvie became Provincial Club Officials, and her other sister Valérie made her debut in weightlifting in 1997.
