More on Michelle...

As graduate from OHIO university at age 22 Michelle Toro (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.

Michelle 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.
