A member of the Canadian national team from 1975 through 1984, Lucie Guay’s most successful kayaking season was her last. Having been selected for the 1980 Summer Olympics, but forced to stay home due to Canada’s boycott of those Games, she finally got an opportunity to attend the tournament in 1984. There she finished seventh in the K1 500, but won a bronze medal in the K4 500 alongside Alexandra Barré, Sue Holloway, and Barb Olmsted. She participated in seven World Championships over the course of her career, but the Olympics were her most successful major international tournament. Athletically involved, she received a degree in physical education from the University of Ottawa and also participated in racquetball at the 1983 Canada Games. Since her retirement she has worked as a motivational speaker, promoting health and fitness, and as a commentator for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, most notably at the 1988 Summer Olympics.
