An undergraduate student in Concordia’s Department of Geography, Planning and Environment, Tammara Thibeault is currently majoring in urban planning and hopes to pursue a PhD. Her gold-medal win from the 2022 Commonwealth Games adds to her growing collection of medals, which include a bronze from the 2018 games and gold medals from both the Canadian Championships and American Continental Championships in 2017. Thibeault also competed at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
“To succeed in the 2022 CWG [Commonwealth Games] it was really a question of teamwork,” says Thibeault. “We had a very busy year, filled with ups and downs and what really pulled it together for this competition was how we always worked as a team.”
