Video Bio: English
Montréal's Jessica Chase knows the hardships faced by amateur athletes and
one of her ambitions is to one day help athletes manage their finances.
Chase, 22, became involved in synchro at age 11 travelling 90-minutes from
her Montréal suburb home to train everyday. She moved to Etobicoke in
February 1998 and qualified as a member of Synchro Canada's Centre of
Excellence team. The two-time national champion has been a member of
Canada's team at every major event since the 1997 FINA World Cup. Outside
the pool she is interested in various arts and is interested in pursuing a
career in bathing suit design when she retires from synchro. She is also
the team's prankster.
