Anouk Leblanc-Boucher proved she had the right stuff back in 2001, when she was able to overcome a broken ankle -- one that required surgery and the insertion of a screw into the limb -- to become a member of the Canadian national short track speed skating team.

While this is Anouk's first full year on the senior national team, she has been making an impact at the junior level for some time now. She was a gold medallist in the 500m at the 2004 Junior World Championships, placing fourth overall at that competition. That same year, she was also presented with the Rising Star Award from the Quebec Speed Skating Federation.

Anouk has wasted no time making her presence felt on the World Cup tour in 2005-06, posting a solid sixth in the first 500m race of the year in Hangzhou, China. She has also recorded two other Top-10 finishes, including a fourth-place, in 500m races on the World Cup circuit.

Leblanc-Boucher has been a significant contributor to the recent success of Canada's 3000m relay team, earning numerous podium finishes -- a gold, silver and bronze -- in World Cup action this season.

When not posting solid results with the national team, Leblanc-Boucher enjoys going for walks with her dog, and snowboarding.

In what will be her first appearance at the Olympic Games, she will look to ride the momentum of her recent success on the World Cup tour.
