More on Brittany...

Brittany MacLean is a two-time Olympic swimmer who grew up following the footsteps of her older sister and 2012 Olympian Heather MacLean. After narrowly missing the podium in her individual event at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and placing 5th, Brittany came back to the pool a few days later, while fighting illness, to take home the Olympic bronze medal in the 4X200 metre Freestyle relay.

Brittany studied in the United States at the University of Georgia where she earned a degree in Sport Management. Brittany won three NCAA team titles and held her ground against the American powerhouse swimmers by being named the 2014 NCAA Swimmer of the year. Although Brittany retired after her medal winning performance at the Rio Olympics, she still holds the Canadian record in the 200, 400, 800 and 1500 metre Freestyle events.

Brittany’s work with youth extends beyond camps and clinics in the pool: through her volunteer experience in sport activations for The Special Olympics of Northeast Georgia, and her involvement in raising awareness for mental health issues and suicide prevention through The Sashbear Organization®. Brittany’s enthusiasm, energy and passion for sport and the lessons it can teach is one of a kind.
