Biography

Involved in synchronized swimming since the age of nine, Erin Woodley joined the Canadian national squad in 1989 and won a silver medal in the team event at that year’s Junior World Championships. Her first major medal as a senior, also silver, came at the 1991 Pan American Games. A partnership with veteran Lisa Alexander that began in 1993 quickly paid off, as they won duet gold at the 1994 Commonwealth Games and silver at the 1994 World Aquatics Championships, in addition to silver in the team event, alongside Janice Bremner, Karen Clark, Karen Fonteyne, Cari Read, Kasia Kulesza, and the non-Olympian Carrie DeGuerre. Alexander and Woodley continued their podium streak at the 1995 Pan American Games, where they won silver in the duet, and the 1996 Summer Olympics, where they won silver in the team event with Bremner, Clark, Fonteyne, Read, Kulesza, Christine Larsen, Sylvie Fréchette, and Valérie Hould-Marchand. Woodley retired after the Games and has worked in several fields, including coaching. She was made a member of the Etobicoke Sports Hall of Fame in 2005.
