Welcoming Cindy Ouellet to Team Infinit!

Cindy is an exceptional athlete and we are thrilled to have her be apart of Team Infinit. Currently, she is an accomplished basketball player that is also competing in competitive CrossFit contests - a pretty cool match! 

"First, I couldn’t be more happy to be an Infinit Nutrition Canada athlete! I love the products, which are helping me everyday for my basketball training and CrossFit pre- and post- workouts. I love what the company stands for and the fact that their blends are clean and taste great!"

Cindy was always involved in sports but her goals took a turn in 2001 when she was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma (bone cancer). 

"After my cancer I did a little bit of swimming and track but really fell in love with basketball. I started playing in 2006 after my physiotherapist introduced me to the sport. Shortly after I had the chance to tryout for the Senior women's national team, and was selected to be apart of the team; I made amazing memories at the 2008 and 2012 Paralympics, and participated in the World Championships in 2010 (Bronze) and 2014 (Gold). Everytime I put on my #7 Canada jersey I realize how lucky I am to be representing Canada at major contests around the world."

Along with basketball, Cindy also competes competitively in CrossFit. She recently captured the Wodapalooza crown in the adaptive women division AND finished first in every event. 

"I love challenges which is why I took on Crossfit about a year ago. I participated in the Open games in 2015 and the Wodapalooza Games this year. In a few weeks, I will be competing in my second Open which begins on the 25th of February. The adaptive movement has grown so much in only a year and more and more competitive contests have been featuring adaptive events."

Something else you may not know about Cindy is that she is in school full-time in California and playing for their basketball team, while travelling to Toronto to train with Team Canada and home to Quebec for family time - that's a pretty busy schedule if you ask us!

"My day is like any other high level athlete, training about twice a day + mobility session and taking my supplements (Raw, Rescue, X-Cite) in order to get ready for the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games in September. I’m pursuing my PhD at the University of Southern California in Biomedical Engineering, so fuelling and planning my day right is really important!"

Some words of Wisdom from Cindy?

"Don’t let anyone tell you something is impossible, your desire and determination will lead your dreams to become memories :)"

Welcome to the team! After the CrossFit Open, Cindy will be travelling back and forth between Toronto and Quebec before competing in the Toronto Cup from March 28th - April 2nd.
