Marnie McBean is one of Canada’s most decorated Olympians, and an expert in turning potential into performance. As one of only two Canadians ever to win three Gold medals in the Summer Olympics, she is used to performing under pressure. Her 12 World and Olympic medals bear witness to this.
After a record-breaking rowing career, the Canadian Olympic Committee hired her as a Specialist in Olympic Athlete Preparation and Mentoring. She worked closely with 5 Canadian Olympic Teams, both summer and winter, as they prepared to compete and “own the podium”. Regardless of their sport, she worked to prepare them emotionally and psychologically, helping to transform their potential into reality. Her job, simply, is to ensure the highest performance possible.
