Nancy Morin

Nancy Morin first started playing goalball at age 19 after volunteering at a goalball tournament in Montreal; subsequently she began practicing with Team Québec. Three years later, in 1997, Morin became a member of the Canadian National Goalball Team.

Growing up with a visual impairment never stopped Morin from playing sports. She was an athletic child and played numerous team sports throughout her youth. Her mother encouraged her involvement in sport and was always a huge support; she even coached some of Morin’s teams.

Today, Morin is an accomplished athlete. She has competed at three Paralympic Games and four world championships. Morin won gold medals at the Paralympic Games in Athens in 2004 and Sydney in 2000, placed fifth in Beijing and has gold and silver world championship medals.

Morin was also a key member of the bronze medal-winning Canadian team at the 2011 Parapan American Games in Guadalajara and is sure to be instrumental in their podium quest at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

Morin is currently finishing a baccalaureate degree in Education and planning on doing a Graduate certificate in visual impairment. In her spare time, she enjoys horseback riding, swimming, rollerblading and reading.
