Growing up in an active family, Jérémy was no different than most Canadian kids when it came to selecting his sports. He loved hockey in the winter and kicking a soccer ball during the summer months from the time he was six years old.

It was not long into his elementary school years though that Jérémy began swimming. Combining this with his love to cycle and run became the foundation of his Olympic dream in the sport of triathlon.

Jérémy’s goals were clear – he wants to become the next Simon Whitfield.

In 2007, Jérémy toed the line for his first triathlon where he finished sixth at Jeux du Québec. He improved on that performance two years later in the same event when he won the silver medal. Over the years, his progression was steady and Jérémy was slowly developing into an elite triathlete while racing provincially, then nationally and internationally beginning in 2012.

After finishing 11th at the 2014 World Junior Triathlon Championships, a short visit with his triathlon hero Simon Whitfield provided extra motivation for Jérémy to continue chasing his Olympic dreams in the sport. He was a member of the National Development Team in 2015 before sitting out most of the 2016 season with an injury.

Slowly working his way back, Jérémy competed in his first World Cup event in 2017 where he was 15th.

Coached by Luc Morin since 2012, along with his swim coach René Laroche since 2011, he is now showing tremendous promise after winning the 2019 Canadian Triathlon Championships.

Equally as important as sport is education for Jérémy. Passionate about math and physics, Jérémy dove into physics at McGill University where he completed his Bsc. in 2019 with a specialization in Mathematics. He intends to pursue graduate studies in Mathematics applied to Artificial Intelligence in a domain where he could contribute to improve life of Canadians. He competed in varsity running while attending McGill between 2015 and 2017.

When not training or competing, Jérémy works at the Institut National des Sports du Quebec as a Data Analyst where he supports a variety of research projects. He loves movies, literature and music. He also enjoys the outdoors including mountain biking and canoeing.
