  • Baumann won the gold medal in the 800-m freestyle and silver in the 400-m freestyle at the Team Canada Trials to gain the berth.
  • Made her first senior national team in 2014, qualifying for Commonwealth Games and Pan Pacific Championships. She finished 13th in the 400-m and 800-m freestyle at Commonwealth Games. At Pan Pacs she competed in three events, finishing 13th in the 800, 18th in the 400 and 24th in the 200-m freestyle.
