François-Imbeau-Dulac_600François Imbeau-Dulac joined the national junior team program in 2007 and made the jump to the senior team a year later. He made his FINA World Championship debut in 2011 and went on to finish fifth in the 3m springboard at the 2011 Pan American Games. With that small amount of international experience, he qualified for London 2012 where he posted the single highest-scoring dive (93.60) of the preliminary round on his sixth and final attempt to help him advance to the semifinal. He missed a spot in the final by one place. At the 2013 Worlds he finished two spots shy of reaching the semifinal. Imbeau-Dulac dealt with multiple hip injuries in 2014, but did compete at the Commonwealth Games and FINA World Cup. He then completely changed his technique, switching the primary leg that powers his takeoff. The hard work helped get his 2015 season off to a good start as he competed on the elite World Series circuit.

PERSONAL

Family: Parents Camille Imbeau and Mona-Lisa Dulac… Older sister Catherine competed internationally in synchronized skating… Getting into the Sport: Started diving at age 9 and first competed two years later… His parents signed him up because he was always jumping around; he wanted to do gymnastics but they thought it would be too dangerous for a “daredevil kid” like him… Outside Interests: Will finish Cégep by distance in 2015 (Human Sciences)… Enjoys outdoor sports such as hiking and kayaking… Likes swimming, baseball, hockey… Huge figure skating fan and sometimes regrets that he stopped competing… Spends a lot of time studying in coffee shops and competing in dog shows with his dogs and mom… Odds and Ends: Favourite quote: “Our greatest glory is not in never failing but in rising every time we fall” – Confucius… Inspired by figure skaters Patrick Chan (for his grace, power and ability to make every movement look effortless) and Florent Amodio (for his unique style and artistry) because they represent the type of diver he wants to be… Nickname: Frank…
