As a young child, Joanna grew up playing soccer in her hometown of Carp, Ont. and also enjoyed running cross-country with her school team. But her most passionate sport quickly changed when her aunt saw an ad in a local paper introducing the Bytown Storm Triathlon Team. She was quickly convinced to give it a try and she was on her way.

A naturally gifted runner, Joanna competed in her first race in 2007, which was rainy, overcast and freezing cold, but the conditions did not matter. She was hooked and officially left soccer to pursue a career in triathlon.

Joanna made her entrance onto the world stage in 2010 when she won the bronze medal at the World Junior Championships. She followed that up in 2011 with another bronze medal at the World Championships – this time in the Under-23 category. Joanna finally broke through on the elite circuit in 2017 battling to four top-10 finishes on the World Triathlon Series including a fifth-place result at the Grand Final. She continued that success into 2018 where she became just the fourth Canadian ever to win a Commonwealth Games medal when she celebrated the bronze in Gold Coast, Australia. After posting two, fourth-place finishes at the World Triathlon Series in Montreal, Joanna became just the third Canadian ever to podium on the elite triathlon circuit last year when she won the bronze in Bermuda.

Joanna is now focused on earning a spot on Canada’s 2020 Olympic Team, and ultimately, win an Olympic gold medal for her country. She also wants to do her part in increasing awareness of the importance of physical activity for adolescents.

Joanna looks up to the athletes around her committed to overcoming obstacles to remain focused on their pursuit of excellence. She gains motivation from anyone who is committed to improving themselves and testing their abilities.
