She competed in both the 100m Butterfly and 100m Backstroke finishing 10th and 15th respectively.  She also raced the Butterfly leg in the 4 x 100m 34 pts Medley Relay that broke the Canadian Record dating back to the 2000 Sydney Paralympics games.   She holds national records in the 50m, 100m and 200m butterfly short course as well in the 50m backstroke short course.  Danielle has been swimming competitively since 2013 and will now focus her training toward the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics Games.
