Bruce Millar

Bruce Millar learned to sail growing up on Toronto Island and began racing when he was 10 years old. He suffered a crushed spine in the crash of a hyperlight plane but in 1999 returned to sailing. This will be Millar’s third Paralympic Games after representing Canada in Beijing in 2008 and Athens in 2004.

Millar loves the challenge sailing provides. It gives him self-satisfaction and friendship while allowing him to see the world.

Millar won a bronze medal at the London Paralympics test regatta held at Weymouth in June 2012.
