Biography

Anne Montminy made her Olympic début in 1992 in Barcelona. By 1995, Montminy held the World Junior, Commonwealth, Pan-Am, and World University 10m titles and she entered the 1996 Olympic Games world ranked fourth on the 10m. But after a disastrous performance in Atlanta, she took a post-Olympic break to concentrate on her law studies and she rebuilt her career piece-by-piece in one of the nicest comeback stories in Canadian sport - going on to win two medals at the 2000 Olympic Games (silver in the platform synchro with Emilie Heymans, bronze in the 10m platform).

Montminy started diving at age six, following the example of her father who was a national level diver. She trained at Pointe-Claire Diving Club in Pointe-Claire, Quebec with her long-time coach Yi Hua Li.

A graduate of the University of Montreal and New York University School of Law, Montminy was the recipient of the 1993 Elaine Tanner Award, and was named the 1993 Aquatic Federation of Canada’s Female Athlete of the Year.
