Sylvie Frechette Biography

Athlete and businesswoman Sylvia Fréchette has soared to great personal and professional heights thanks to her extraordinary tenacity. After discovering synchronized swimming in 1974, Fréchette has been endlessly devoted to the sport and sharing her unique story.

Fréchette won the gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in 1986 and five years later, she recorded five perfect 10s at the World Aquatic Championship in Australia to become world champion. From 1988 to 1992, Fréchette dominated in the international competitions.

Fréchette went to the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games with a troubled mind. She had just lost her grandfather, and the devastating news of her fiancé’s suicide was almost the end of her career. Despite the terrible circumstances and her grief, Fréchette decided to soldier on and compete. Although she had the best performance of her career, a judge's technical error pushed Fréchette to fourth place in compulsory figures, and she finished second in combo. Following a 16-month review of her file, Fréchette was finally awarded the gold medal by the IOC.

Almost two years later, Fréchette resumed training with seven other members of the Club Montréal Synchro. As a team, they won the silver medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, and Fréchette announced her official retirement from the sport.

Fréchette has been the recipient of various awards and honours. She was named the ‘Canadian Athlete of the Year’ in aquatic sports from 1989 to 1992. In 1993, the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sports and Physical Activity awarded her the ‘Grace Under Pressure’ award, and Prince Albert of Monaco awarded her the Per Ludos Fraternitas award of the Association internationale contre la violence dans les sports. In 1993, the Canadian Sports Awards created the Sylvie Fréchette Trophy that is awarded to the athlete who has overcome a difficult situation. Fréchette, along with Silken Laumann and Yves Laroche, was the first recipient of this award. In 1994, Fréchette received the very first Ordre Olympique du Canada award, and in 1999, she became a member of Canada's Sports Hall of Fame.  

Despite her long training hours, Fréchette succeeded in completing a B.A. in Physical Education from the Université de Montréal. In addition to her various projects, she is the spokesperson for the National Bank and she worked in Las Vegas with the Cirque du Soleil to develop a show called "O", in which she was artist, choreographer and trainer.

Today, armed with her personal and professional experience, Fréchette motivates others to overcome the challenges of daily life and to never give up on their goals.
