Biography

Carolyn WALDO

At the 1984 Olympics, Carolyn Waldo finished second in the solo synchronized swimming event behind Tracie Ruiz (USA). But Waldo then displaced her as the top synchronized performer, winning the 1986 World Championships in solo and duet, partnered by Michelle Cameron, and competing on the winning team. She had also earned a team gold at the 1982 Worlds. At the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, Waldo won the solo gold medal and together with Cameron, added the duet gold medal as well. Waldo won “triples,” the solo, duet, and team championships, at the 1985 FINA Cup, 1986 World Championships, and the 1987 Pan-Pacific Meet. She also competed on winning teams at the 1981 Pan-Pacifics and the 1983 Pan-American Games. Waldo won the Velma Springstead Trophy in 1985-88, given to Canada's outstanding female athlete. She was made an Officer of the Order of Canada, and in 1988 won the Lou Marsh Trophy, given to Canada's top athlete for the year. Waldo later went into network news and became a sports anchor at CTV in Ottawa.
