Patrick’s Bio

  • At the 2019 Canadian Swimming Trials in Toronto, Waters claimed a multi-class bronze medal in the 100-m breaststroke.
  • Waters is a former national-level Olympic program swimmer. He switched to Para sport after a congenital birth defect, hip dysplasia, required surgery to restructure both of his hip sockets in 2012. The changes in his hips shifted his pelvis and fractured a vertebra in his back, later requiring another surgery.
  • Out of the pool, Waters is a certified exercise physiologist. He has worked with a wide range of athletes from beginner to elite and frequently lectures to athletes and parents in the areas of sports nutrition, and strength & conditioning.
