Born May 15, 1982 in St. Paul de Joliette, Quebec, biathlete Marie-Pierre Parent initially took to cross-country skiing. It was a sport she loved throughout her childhood and into her teenage years. Then at the age of 16, she was introduced to biathlon and never looked back.

A member of the National Biathlon Team for three years, Parent has yet to accomplish much on the international biathlon scene. To date, her best result is a 54th place in a 15 km Individual race in Norway during the 2004-05 season. She has five other Top-80 finishes on the World Cup circuit over the past two seasons.

The youngster has also had middling results at the World Championships during the same span, finishing 69th in the 15 km Individual race in 2004 and 65th in the 7.5 km Sprint in 2005. On a bright note at the 2005 World Games, Parent was a member of the Canadian relay team, along with Sandra Keith, Zina Kocher and Martine Albert, which finished a solid 15th in the 4 x 6 km race.

Despite the lukewarm international results, Parent's recent showings domestically indicate good things are certain to be coming in the future. In 2005, she was named the top female biathlete at the Canadian Championships after picking up one gold and two silver medals in the three-day event in Edmonton. One year before, she claimed gold and silver at the Canadian Championships in Valcartier, Quebec, proving that she has what it takes to be a factor in the sport.
