Gaétan Turcotte competed on Canada’s water polo team at the Pan Am Games (1975), the World Championships (1975 and 1979) and the Montreal Olympic Games (1976). He went on to coach in Newfoundland, Manitoba and Australia, and his brilliant career as an international water polo official culminated in refereeing the men’s gold medal match at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Gaétan also served as one of Canada’s delegates on the PanAm Aquatics (then known as UANA) Technical Water Polo Committee from 2020-2022. Sadly, Gaétan passed away in the spring of 2022 at the age of 67.
