She broke the world record for the event 8 times, and at the 2002 Games, set an Olympic record time of 37.30 seconds. She is also a 5-time World Champion.

Catriona will be the morning show co-host of CTVâs 2012 Olympic Summer Games from London, England. Catriona is not only a world champion but a talented motivational speaker as well. Articulate, engaging and fluently bilingual, she connects with audiences by discussing how to achieve personal excellence and motivating people to realize their full potential.
