Karina LeBlanc

Goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc has represented Canada at two consecutive Olympic Games. After making her debut at Beijing 2008, LeBlanc was a member of the squad that captured a historic bronze medal at London 2012.

In Beijing, LeBlanc appeared in one game, coming into the quarterfinal against the United States in the 19th minute. Canada dropped that game to finish eighth in the first-ever Olympic appearance for the women’s soccer team. In London, LeBlanc started one game, a 3-0 victory over South Africa in the preliminary round. The women would go on to win Canada’s first Olympic medal in a traditional team summer sport since Berlin 1936.

LeBlanc has represented Canada at four FIFA Women’s World Cups and three Pan American Games. At the 2011 Pan American Games, LeBlanc stopped two penalty shots in the final to help give Canada the gold medal.

LeBlanc is American-born with dual citizenship with Canada. She grew up in Maple Ridge, B.C. and played college soccer at the University of Nebraska earning a degree in Business Administration.
