At age 7, Chamandy was watching Alexandre Despatie compete at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games on television, and realized she had a passion for diving. She told her parents about her new fascination for diving and one day competing at the Olympic Games, and her parents signed her up for her first diving lessons a few months later.
Olivia stepped onto the podium not once, but twice at the 2016 FINA World Junior Championships, becoming the first Canadian to win two medals in that competition since Blythe Hartley in 2000. Since then, she has left the junior ranks and keeps climbing her way up the ladder with impressive results at the senior level.
