Athlete Bio

Date of Birth: December 23, 1995


Ali ten Hove from Kingston, ON, was introduced to sailing at the age of 8 out of the Kingston Yacht Club. She was inspired by her dad Martin, Olympian in this sport who represented Canada at the 1984 Games in Los Angeles. He also won a bronze medal at the 1983 Pan American Games.

Ali ten Hove started out in the Opti class, then progressing to compete in the 420 and i420 events starting at age 14 winning, many National and North American titles while representing Canada at two Youth World Championships with her teammate Allie Surrette.

In 2013, she and skipper Allie Surrette transitioned to the 470 Olympic class to qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games. Unfortunately, the team did not meet the internal selection criteria to compete at the Games.

Following these Games, Ali ten Hove decided to become a skipper in the 49er FX class. She met her current teammate Mariah Millen through a mutual coach. Ali and Mariah also share an additional common point as their fathers are both Olympians, at different Games, but with the same skipper, Frank McLaughlin.

Since teaming up, the team took 5th place at the 2017 World Junior Championships, the 2nd position at the 2016 and 2017 North American Championships, the 4th place at the 2019 Pan American Games, while winning many National titles. In 2019, they set a Canadian record finishing 15th place at the European Championships which is the best Canadian performance in this class in an international competition. Then, in 2020, they set a personal best finish of 18th at the 49er FX World Championships.

At the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Ali ten Hove and her partner Mariah Millen took the 16th position in 49er FX at their first Games.

Ali ten Hove graduated from Queen’s University in 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering.
