More About Michelle:

mich

  • Rio 2016 Olympic bronze medallist (4X100m Freestyle relay)

  • Bachelor of Science in Nursing, U of T (in progress)

  • Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science (2014), Ohio State University

  • Qualified for her first National Team at the age of 23

  • Penny Oleksiak and Kylie Masse are Michelle’s younger teammates whom she mentors and has had tremendous influence over

As graduate from OHIO university at age 22 Michelle Williams had yet to qualify for a National Swim Team. It wasn’t until she was 23 years old that she reached her goal of representing Canada on the international stage. Michelle went on to win two bronze medals at the Commonwealth Games and a gold medal on home soil at the 2015 Pan American Games. Her perseverance through the ups and downs of swimming and life outside of the pool became evident when she finally not only put herself on an Olympic team, but won an Olympic bronze medal alongside her Canadian teammates in Rio. Through her diligent professionalism, Michelle has become a leader on the national team and has experience coaching young swimmers around Ontario. She is passionate about caring for people around her, and knows first hand what the support and belief of an Olympian can do. While she completes her nursing degree, the opportunity for her to stay connected with the next generation through Head to Head is one she cannot pass up.


More About Tera:

  • 2012 Olympic Games: 9th (100m breaststroke), 12th (4x100m medley relay)

  • 2014 Commonwealth Games: 6th (100m breaststroke), BRONZE (4x100m medley relay

  • 2010 Youth Olympic Games: GOLD (100m breaststroke), SILVER (200m breaststroke), BRONZE (4x100m freestyle relay), 4th (4x100m medley relay)

Tera Van Beilen admits she used to have excessive dreams about making the Olympic team. Those dreams became reality in 2012 when she got as close as she could get to advancing to the 100m breaststroke final in London, losing a swim-off for the eighth spot in the final to Jamaica’s Alia Atkinson. Van Beilen also competed in the 200m breaststroke after winning the event at the Canadian Trials, knocking world record holder Annamay Pierse off the Canadian Olympic team in the process. Van Beilen had competed at the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in 2010, winning three medals including gold in the 100m breaststroke. Her multi-sport competition experience includes the 2011 and 2013 Universiades, where she won a pair of silver medals in her first appearance. Van Beilen made her FINA World Championship debut in 2013. She has been part of four straight CIS championship teams with the UBC Thunderbirds
