Justin-BoydJustin Boyd has dreamed being an Olympian since watching Simon Whitfield win triathlon gold at Sydney 2000. That dream came true at Beijing 2008 where, at age 19, he was the youngest member of the Canadian water polo team. Boyd has since been a part of three FINA World Championship teams (2009, 2011, 2013), with the best result coming in Rome in 2009 when the men finished eighth. He was also part of the silver medal-winning squad at the 2011 Pan Am Games in Guadalajara. In 2014 he helped Canada match its best ever result of sixth place in the FINA Water Polo World League Super Final. Boyd began his career with the Dollard des Ormeaux water polo club in Montreal before moving to Calgary to join the senior national team. He has played professionally in Montenegro and Italy.
