Gabrielle Carle made her Olympic debut at Tokyo 2020 where she spent most of her time as a substitute but did get into some game action during the preliminary round match against Great Britain.

Carle made her first appearance with Canada at the 2014 FIFA U-17 World Cup when she was just 15. She debuted with the senior team at the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto, where she played all 90 minutes of Canada’s last two games, including the loss to Mexico in the bronze medal match. Carle scored her first senior international goal in Canada’s 10-0 win over Guatemala at the CONCACAF Olympic Qualifier in 2016 where the team finished second to earn a spot in Rio. She was also part of the victorious Canadian squad at the 2016 Algarve Cup before being an Olympic alternate. In late 2016, she played for Canada at the FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Carle rejoined the senior national team for the 2017 Algarve Cup and then the FIFA Women’s World Cup Qualifiers in 2018. She would be part of her first FIFA Women’s World Cup team in 2019. In early 2020 she helped Canada to a second-place finish at the CONCACAF Olympic Qualifier to earn the team’s spot at Tokyo 2020.

Carle won an NCAA Championship with Florida State University in 2018.
