Johanne Begin heads Canada's women's water polo team
First female head coach was interim boss since August
Water Polo Canada is taking the interim tag off Johanne Begin's title as head coach of the Canadian senior women's water polo team.
The 43-year-old native of Quebec City is the first woman to hold the position.
The two-time Olympian previously served as an assistant coach before taking the interim head coaching job last August following Guy Baker's departure.
Begin played on the Canadian team from 1991 through 2007 and also played on several pro teams in Italy.
She competed at four world championships and reached the podium at the Pan Am Games on two occasions.
The Canadian women's water polo team finished seventh at the 2004 Athens Games and hasn't qualified for the Olympics since.
