McBean named Canada's chef de mission for Tokyo Games


The Toronto native captured three gold medals in her two Olympic appearances to become one of just two Canadians to be a triple gold medalist at the Summer Games.

Since retiring from competition in 2000 due to a back injury, McBean has been an active athlete mentor and advocate.

Recently she has worked with the Canadian Olympic Committee as a specialist in preparing athletes emotionally and psychologically to give their best performance possible at the Olympic Games.
