He began diving at age 9 at Club de plongeon Rouge et Or in Québec City after watching athletes dive from the 3m at the pool. At the time, he was a competitive swimmer.
François Imbeau-Dulac is a regular among the top-8 in 3m synchro with partner Philippe Gagné and 3m mixed synchro with Jennifer Abel in the Grand Prix and World Series international circuits, often rewarded with podium finishes. Along with partner Gagné, he won silver at 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia and at the 2015 PanAm Games in Toronto. Paired with Abel, he won two medals in 3m mixed synchro at the World Championships: silver in Kazan, Russia in 2015 and bronze two years later in 2017, in Budapest, Hungary.
In the 3m individual event, notable finishes include 13th at the 2012 London Olympics and 10th at the FINA World Cup in Wuhan, China in 2018. Injured, he was unable to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
In his spare time, he loves to take part in dog shows and competitions, more recently with a Bouvier des Flandres named Salto, who has already won over a dozen prizes despite the fact he is still a puppy. Even though he travels quite a bit with the national team, he loves to travel and takes off as soon as he gets a few days or weeks off to discover new places and cultures. He is also a huge figure skating fan – he follows every competition and admits to knowing more about the figure skaters than he does the divers!
