Kamylle Frenette Tokyo Paralympian


What does it feel like to be representing your country at the Paralympic Games?

It feels almost to good to be true to be able to represent the maple leaf on the international stage.

Other than being named to Team Canada, what is your proudest moment so far?

Another proud moment of mine is probably my first world championships in Gold Coast Australia. I crashed on the bike and broke my arm but finished the race. To me, that is a reminder that there is no excuse not to finish a race!

Who is your favorite sports hero?

My favorite sport hero would have to be Terry Fox

What are you most looking forward to at the Paralympic Games?

Being there with my amazing teammates! We have such a great group of people and I’m excited to experience the games with each one of them.

Are you superstitious? How do you like to prepare the day of your event?

I’m not an overly superstitious person but there are a few things I like to write down a schedule for race morning including the time I wake up, eat, … basically every step until I step on the start line. That way, I don’t have to think too much the morning of. I bring that little piece of paper with me and just follow along step by step.

What is the one thing that you are bringing with you in Tokyo?

I will certainly bring a little Acadian flag with me to Tokyo!
