In her Olympic debut, Zsofia Balazs competed as a 22-year-old and finished in 18th place in the 10km open-water Swimming event. She earned an Olympic berth for Canada by finishing sixth in the 10 km FINA Olympic marathon swimming qualifier in June.

She also qualified and competed in the FINA World Aquatic Championships.

Balazs and her family immigrated to Canada in 2004 from Hungry. Balazs qualified for the 2005 Canada Games Team and won silver in the 200m butterfly. She went on to win her fist open-water national title the following year in 2006.
