As first female diver in the World and Canada’s first athlete to earn medals in four-straight Summer Olympic Games, Emilie is one of this country’s most decorated Olympians of all time.
The Brussels, Belgium native collected a bronze at the London 2012 Games in 3m synchronized springboard with partner Jennifer Abel, marking Canada’s first medal of the Games and adding to a legendary resume.
Emilie made her Olympic debut in 2000 in the synchro platform event and won a silver medal with partner Anne Montminy. After being crowned 10m platform world champion in 2003, Emilie returned to the Games in 2004 with new platform synchro partner,Blythe Hartley, to win bronze. In 2008 she claimed her first individual Olympic medal, a platform silver.
Emilie and Jennifer Abel had an impressive 2011, winning a silver medal at the World Championships in Shanghai. The pair matched that finish later on in the year in Guadalajara at the Pan American Games.
The seven-time Pan American medalist topped her first podium in 1999 in the 10m platform. In 2003 she earned gold from the platform in both the synchro and individual events, adding a silver in 3m springboard. She claimed another Pan Am gold in 2007 and a silver in 2011 at the platform synchro. To add to her decorated list of accomplishments, Heymans is also a four-time Commonwealth Games medalist.
