Roseline-Filion_600In her second Olympic Games at London 2012, Roseline Filion won 10m synchro bronze with partner Meaghan Benfeito. The best friends and diving sisters have been one the best 10m teams in the world since a surprising bronze medal at the 2005 FINA World Championships which came just a couple of months after they placed third at the Canada Cup, their first international competition together. Fourth in 2007 and 2009, they returned to the world championship podium with silver in 2013, a result they replicated in 2015. The duo has also won medals at three straight editions of the biennial FINA World Cup. Filion has won multiple medals at other multi-sport games, including silver with Benfeito at the 2011 Pan Am Games. At the 2015 Pan Am Games the pair won gold in the 10m synchro event and shared the podium in the individual 10m event, in which Benfeito took bronze behind silver medallist Filion. In 2014 she was a double Commonwealth Games medallist, winning 10m synchro gold with Benfeito and an individual bronze medal.
