Kenzie Priddell


Kenzie Priddell joined the senior national team program in 2019 and was the alternate for Team Canada’s artistic swimming team at Tokyo 2020.  A bronze medallist in the team event at the Santiago 2023 Pan American Games, where she served as team co-captain, Priddell has also been a key figure in Canada’s World Aquatics Championship appearances in 2019, 2022, 2023, and 2024.

At the World Aquatics Artistic Swimming World Cup held in Markham, Ontario in June 2024, Priddell helped Canada win medals in all three team events (team technical silver, team free silver, team acrobatic bronze). That followed a silver medal in the team free at the World Cup in Paris in early May that served as the Olympic test event of the Aquatics Centre for Paris 2024.
