FINAL SCORE: PERFECT

For nearly 22 years, Alex Despatie has been on an important journey – one destined to inspire a nation. He gave us a career that showed us what is possible. And with his retirement comes a new inspiration to follow his example of excellence.

“After much internal reflection, I have decided to turn the page and retire from diving. I look forward to new challenges and I think that the time is right for me to step aside,” said Alexandre. “I would have liked to participate in this year’s world championships in Barcelona, but circumstances are such that I am unable to. After diving for all these years, I am satisfied with my career and happy with my decision. As I look back, I am so proud of everything I have accomplished. I would like to thank all those who have supported me throughout my career: my coaches, my teammates, Diving Canada, Plongeon Québec, B2dix, McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada who has supported me for almost 15 years, as well as all my other sponsors. Finally, a huge thank you to my family for their unconditional support.”

Going forward, Alexandre intends to pursue a career in the fields of art and media. Having lived his first cinematographic experience a few years ago with the movie À vos marques, party!, and a very recent animation experience with Le Grand saut, Alexandre got hooked and looks forward to participating in other television and film projects in the future.
