She discovered wheelchair athletics at 18 and immediately fell in love with racing. Petitclerc started training for the Paralympics while still in school. After taking part in the Games in Barcelona in 1992 she went on to compete in Atlanta, Sydney, Athens and Beijing. In those five appearances she won 21 medals, 14 of them gold.
