Ahmad Zeividavi


Ahmad Zeividavi began playing goalball at the age of 14 and went on to compete at the elite level in 2009. He pursued goalball because it is specifically for people with a visual impairment and he really enjoyed the sport right from the start. To Zeividavi, sport represents entertainment, fun, hard work, and team work. Sport has helped him feel pride and joy in representing his country.

One of Zeividavi’s most memorable moments since he began his goalball career was when Canada defeated the U.S. to qualify for the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games.  Zeividavi has also competed at the IBSA World Championships and World Games.

He was also a member of the Canadian squad at the 2011 Parapan American Games in Guadalajara, where the team placed fourth.
