Controversy[edit]

At the medal presentation for the women's 50 metre backstroke at the 2002 Commonwealth Games, Carroll was seen waving the flag of Quebec. Dave Johnson, Carroll's coach, called for her to be suspended. Swimming Canada ultimately decided not to suspend Carroll, even though she violated a signed agreement, mandated by the Commonwealth Games, that prohibits athletes from carrying provincial flags on the podium. Instead, a disciplinary committee ordered her in November to write a letter to her teammates and apologize to the board. She did both. Carroll stated that the move was not political gesture but was just simply of way of thanking the people in her home province who have supported her.[26]
