“I have such a strong attachment to the Commonwealth Games, dating all the way back to 1990 when I was a silver medalist in Auckland, New Zealand—the first time that events for elite athletes with a disability were included on the sport programme. “In 2006, I was honoured to serve as Team Canada’s flag bearer at the Opening Ceremony for the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Australia. It was truly one of the highlights of my career.” says Chantal

Chantal has also two 800-metre gold medals from the Commonwealth Games in Manchester, England (2002) and Melbourne (2006).Her trophy case includes a staggering 21 Paralympic medals (including 14 gold) and the Lou Marsh Trophy as Canadian athlete of the year.
