Whether it is in English or in French, Chantal Petitclerc knows what she is speaking about when she talks about attitude, passion and determination.

Attitude: How to have and keep a positive mindset, whatever the circumstances or events.

“We don’t always control what happens to us in life, but we can always control our attitude toward the trials life throws our way.”

Passion: It is indispensable if we want to reach our goals and make our dreams come true!

“When I started out, my capacity was very limited, and my results were not conclusive. But I was passionate about the sport and had a clear vision of what I wanted to accomplish: I would become the best in the world. I just had to go faster!”

Finally, determination: It allows us to work tirelessly with the conviction and confidence that this is what is necessary to obtain the desired results.

“When I got to Beijing, my plan was simple: Control everything that was possible for me to control…and be ready to face anything that was impossible for me to control!”
