WATCH: Sandrine Mainville Is A Key Part of Canada’s 4×100 Free Relay

Sandrine Mainville was one of the five High Performance Centre – Ontario athletes who qualified to compete for Canada at the 2016 Canadian Olympic Games last week at the Canadian Olympic Trials.

Although she didn’t make it in an individual event, Mainville will be part of Canada’s 4×100 freestyle relay. The relay has a great chance to medal in Rio. Last summer, Mainville led off the relay at the World Championships, putting up a 53.85 performance.

She’s proven that she’s more than dominant as a relay swimmer, and with her HPC – Ontario teammates supporting her on the relay, she has a lot to look forward to come Rio.
