She's won six world championships --a feat no one else has matched and has taken home numerous awards for her amazing accuracy and skill. She has the distinction of beating out Wayne Gretzky as Canadian Athlete of the Year in 1981 and that same year was also inducted as an Officer of the Order of Canada. In her spare time Susan managed to earn a PhD, run an osteoporosis research unit and successfully lobby the International Olympic Committee for a separate women's trap shooting division --- a dream which was realized at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. In 2001, as the oldest competitor in the field, Susan celebrated her 25th appearance at the World Shooting Championships with a silver medal. She narrowly missed the gold after a three-way shoot-off for the medals."--Diversus Website
