Born Ready, Worn Proudly: Behind-the-Scenes Moments from the PeyongChang Paralympic Games
Our athletes know that no games are complete without enjoying the ride!
With 19 medals and counting for team Canada at the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games, our athletes have a lot to be proud of, from the slopes to the ice rink (they are bringing medals in alpine skiing, snowboarding, curling and are aiming for gold in men’s hockey). And in good Canadian fashion, it looks like they are having a great time while competing.
Here are a few behind-the-scenes moments from the Paralympic Games.
