Personal life

Phaneuf is the fourth cousin of Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman and captain Dion Phaneuf.

Career

Phaneuf at 2011 Four Continents

Cynthia Phaneuf began skating at age four after watching her cousin skating.[5] She landed her first triple, a salchow, at the age of eleven.[5]

Phaneuf was coached by Annie Barabé and Sophie Richard in Contrecœur, Quebec until November 2011.[6] Her programs are choreographed by David Wilson. In domestic Canadian competitions, she represents CPA Sorel.

Considered a threat to qualify for the 2006 Canadian Olympic team due to her two previous National medals, Phaneuf was forced to withdraw from the 2006 Canadian Championships (the Olympic qualifying competition) due to an injury to her right knee. This was following a stress fracture to her right ankle that prevented her from competing in fall competitions. In 2007, she earned a spot on the Canadian ladies' world team by finishing fourth in that year's national championships.

In 2008, she continued her comeback with a third place showing in the national championships, and a seventh place at the Four Continents Championships.

In 2010, at the World Championships, she placed fifth. She was fourth in the free program and eight in the short program. Had she scored 1.09 more points, she would have won a bronze medal.

During the 2010-11 season, she placed fourth in her two Grand Prix events. At the 2011 Canadian Championships, she won her second national title.

In November 2011, Phaneuf left Quebec and longtime coaches Annie Barabé and Sophie Richard to move to Toronto to train with Brian Orser.[7]
