Before the team left for Osaka, Mayor Gilles Lamontagne presented a farewell gift – a cheque to help cover travel expenses – to the YWCA swimming team. The team, coached by Suzanne Eon, was composed of eight girls, aged 12 to 18: Mado Ramsey, Jojo Carrier, Luce Paradis, Linda Bedard, Claude Vaillancourt, Sylvie Maltais, Sylvia Fortier and Michelle Moisan.
