 Canada's most consistently successful international diver over the past four years is Eryn Bulmer. The three-metre specialist has won 10 national titles and 18 international medals throughout her career. She holds the Canadian records on both one and three-metres and is arguably the country's top Olympic medal hope. Her career highlights include the World Cup three-metre title in 1997 and third spot at the recent 2000 World Cup. She also placed second and third overall the past two seasons on the FINA Grand Prix circuit. She was the named the Aquatics Federation of Canada's (comprised of swimming, diving, synchronized swimming and water polo) female athlete of the year in 1997 and 1998.

 Bulmer's coach prescribed a couple of months rest in January 1999 after the her Commonwealth Games victory which concluded a rigorous schedule that had burnt her out. The time away helped her focus on the Pan Am Games, where she won gold again, and get on course for the 2000 Olympics. At the recent 2000 World Cup, Bulmer also earned an Olympic quota spot for Canada on women's synchronized three-metre with partner Blythe Hartley. Bulmer will host a high performance camp in Calgary in July.
