Christine Sinclair scored her first international goal competing in the 2000 Algarve Cup. Going on to score more than 190 since then, Sinclair became the all-time leading scorer in the history of international soccer in January 2020 and was recognized for the feat with The Best FIFA Special Award. She was her team’s leading scorer at the 2012 London Olympics, a feat that earned her the honor of Canada’s closing ceremony flag bearer.
Christine’s been named Canadian Female Soccer Player of the Year 14 times, nominated seven times for FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year, and won a Gold Medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, adding to a pair of Olympic Bronze Medals captured in 2012 and 2016.
Christine has been appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada and a full list of her honors, including those earned during her collegiate career with the University of Portland Pilots, would fill pages.
Off the soccer pitch, Christine is an ambassador for the MS Society of Canada and a vocal advocate for gender equality.
