Andréanne Morin joined the Athletes’ Commission in 2011.
A three-time Olympian in rowing, Andréanne won a silver medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games after finishing fourth in 2008 and seventh in 2004 in the women’s eight.
A skiing accident to her right leg derailed Morin from a competitive career as an alpine skier so she switched to rowing in 1996. The Quebec native is now a three-time World Championships medallist in the women’s eight, winning back-to-back silvers in 2010 and 2011, and a bronze in 2003. A seven-time World Championships team member (five senior, two junior), Morin’s first senior international race was in the 2001 World Cup, where the women’s eight finished 7th.
Her involvement in sport goes beyond her athletic career. Morin completed an internship in the Sport Department of the International Olympic Committee before joining the COC’s Athletes’ Commission. She was also appointed to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Athlete Committee in 2011.
Born in Vanier, Q.C., Morin attended Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, New Hampshire, USA and went on to graduate in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Economy from Princeton University, where she was the 2006 NCAA rowing champion. Morin is currently pursuing a Law degree at the Université de Montréal.
