Head coach of Vaughan Aquatic Club writes about Jade and her grant of citizenship.
“Jade is an athlete who is disciplined, motivated, focused and hardworking, which was demonstrated when she completed her amazing Lake Erie crossing last year. She gained the admiration, recognition and respect from all of her team members as well as members of other teams in the swimming community. Despite all of the time Jade devoted to her swimming, she still manages to maintain a well-balanced lifestyle both academically and socially. We are confident that Jade will be successful in her quest to swim across Lake Ontario in July and become the youngest female swimmer to achieve this goal.”
