Chantal Petitclerc, 14x Paralympic gold medalist

"For me, sports became a passion very, very quickly. I started right after my accident, so it wasn't an easy period for me; a bit difficult and very quickly, I started with swimming, and sports were really a way for me to be with the community, too; to be with my friends; to regain my strength, to become very independent."

Chantal Petitclerc, recipient of the 2008 Lou Marsh Trophy and Bobbie Rosenfeld Award
