Ashlie Andrews

 

The 2011 Guadalajara Parapan American Games was Ashlie Andrews’ first international tournament with the senior national team. She was thrilled to be part of Canada’s bronze medal-winning squad and hopes to do even better in 2015. A year later she helped Canada to fifth at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

Andrews started playing goalball at age 10 at a Blind Sports Day Event, but it wasn’t really a success as she found it interesting but confusing wearing the eye shades.  She made another attempt a couple of years later and went on to compete at the elite level in 2007 by age 14.
