Monica Fyfe has wanted to represent Canada since winning her first senior national title in 2005 at age 14. That earned her a spot on the 2006 Commonwealth Games team where she finished sixth individually and won silver in the 10m air rifle pair event. She returned to the Commonwealth Games in 2014. In between, she made two appearances at the Pan Am Games in 2007 and 2011, recording her best result in her initial outing when she placed seventh. After competing at the 2006 ISSF World Junior Championships, Fyfe made her ISSF World Cup debut in 2007 and that year recorded her career-high result of ninth at the stop in Fort Benning. Fyfe won five national titles between 2005 and 2011.
