About the Olympian - Scott Dickens

By the age of 10, Scott was already winning provincial swimming championships and by 12 he knew he wanted to compete in the Olympics. Scott formulated a plan and re-evaluated it every year to ensure he was on track to his dream of representing Canada at the Olympic Games. At 19 years of age, Scott qualified for his first Olympics in Athens, Greece.

He went on to graduate from the University of British Columbia where he captained the varsity swim team to a National Title and although he missed the Olympic Team in 2008 in a heartbreaking swim at the trials, he was back in 2012 and earned a spot in the Olympic Final with his teammates on the 4 X 100 metre medley relay.

Since completing his Swim career Scott has been involved in sport through swim camps, motivational talks and clinics. Scott has always been a natural leader and through his passion, clear communication and empathy, he has mentored several aspiring athletes over the years.
