Annie Pelletier is known for her diving career, which earned her the bronze medal in the 3m springboard at the 1996 Summer Olympics which is no small feat! In 2008 she was inducted in the Quebec sports hall of fame, another major accomplishment.

Annie Pelletier is now retired from her diving career, but is far from spending her days playing bridge! She was a sports commentator and analyst during the diving events of the year 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016, as well as being a spokeperson for Village Vacances Valcartier (One day is not enough!), she's not one to twiddle her thumbs!

In addition to all this, Annie Pelletier has been the communications director for the Fondation de l’athlète d’excellence du Québec (which aims to financially support student athletes and help them in their pursuit of excellence) AND (cause no that's not all), she is also a sponsor of the Special Olympics since 1997. She has a lot to be proud of!

We cannot mention all her accomplishments without mentioning the one thing that has surely had the biggest impact on her life, giving birth! Yes Annie is a proud mother since December 2015, just to add to her long list.

Anne Pelletier is without a doubt a huge source of inspiration and pride in Quebec.
