Today I'm honoured to feature Claire Hutchinson (a former fellow University of Toronto Varsity Blues Rower) in my "Profiles of Perseverance" series. Claire was on the Varsity team while I was a Novice. I never had the chance to really get to know her, as I only saw her briefly at practices and competitions. I have had the chance to connect with her electronically since my depature (due to graduation) from the team. Claire is an incredibly strong athlete and person! I really respect her, and I am blessed that she took the time out of her busy training schedule to share. Thanks Claire!Read More
