Other Brittany is regarded as one of Canada's top young prospects in the sport of swimming, excelling in the long distance events.

She won two gold and four silver medals at the 2003 Olympic Youth Festival in Australia and the victories signified a personal breakthrough for her as previously whenever she competed at a big event for the first time, she would struggle. Her coach therefore decided to keep a list of all the swimmers she had beaten to maintain her confidence.

She blazed on to the scene in 2003 by winning four gold medals at the World Championship team trials - first in the 200, 400, 800 and 1500 Freestyles and breaking Canadian records in the 400 and 1500m. Her time in the 1500 was the eighth fastest in the world in 2003 and would have been worth sixth place at the 2001 Worlds.

That list initially included swimmers from British Columbia then national team members were added and now it contains names from powerhouses such as the US and Australia.

In 2004, Brittany competed for Canada in the 400m and 800m Freestyle events at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. At age 17, Brittany competed at her third major international event at the Worlds in Montreal in 2005.
