Jane Brissaud has won a silver medal at the 1957 World Championships in Augsburg in mixed C2 together with Gilbert Bonnaud. She finished second in women's individual K1 event.
She was strongly involved with canoeing for decades. from 1960s to 2000s she was a part of all the governing bodies of her club in Grenoble, on the Isère departmental committee, on the Dauphiné-Savoie then Rhône-Alpes regional committee, on the National Slalom Commission where she also served as president, and on the Federal Committee.

Her sons followed the sporting footsteps. Manuel was part of the team that won World Champion title in K1 in 1991, Laurent also won medal at World Championships and participated at the 1992 Olympics, while Frederic won French national champion team title.
We would like to express our sincere condolences to her family and friends. Rest in peace.
