Elite Synchro Swimmer Olivia Moreau ASDC Athlete of the Month

Published

The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central (ASDC-C) is pleased to announce that the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month for December 2019 is Olivia Moreau.

 

Olivia Moreau is a 15 year old Red Deer, AB resident, Grade 10 student at Ecole Notre Dame High School and a competitive Artistic Swimming
(formerly known as Synchronized Swimming) athlete.

Olivia swims competitively with the Red Deer Silhouettes, under the direction of coaches Lauren Dial and Paige Greenwood. Olivia competed at National Duet and Solo last season, significantly improving her scores throughout the season. This year, Olivia will compete in Solo, Duet and Team events at Alberta Provincial Championships and Canadian Prairie Championship.

While Olivia is still 15 years old, this season she will compete in the 16-20 age category in all competitions.

As a 13 year old, in 2018, at the Alberta Winter Games in Ft. McMurray, AB, Olivia captured a Gold medal in both the Solo and Duet Competitions and added a Silver Medal in the Team competition. This made Olivia one of Zone 4’s most decorated athletes at the 2019 Alberta Winter Games.

Olivia and the Silhouettes program have achieved remarkable successes in the pool in spite of the fact that there is no regulation training or competition pool facility in Red Deer.

Olivia is an Honors with Distinction student at Notre Dame High School and one day would like to study medicine at University.

With Olivia’s talent, work ethic, commitment to success and with the support of ASDC-Central, and her sport coaches, Olivia will surely continue to grow and improve as an athlete in her sport of Artistic Swimming.
