Mark Noot

It is while watching a sledge hockey game that Mark suddenly became interested in that sport. He has been competing since 1998 and now trains in Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge. A member of the Canadian national team for the past 5 years, he is possibly the fastest sledge hockey player in the world. Mark represented Canada at the 2004 World Cup and at the World Championships and he will compete in his first Paralympic Winter Games next February in Torino.
In 1997, following a hard battle with meningitis, Mark had to have both legs amputated above the knee. Instead of feeling sorry for himself and relying on others, he chose to make life his new challenge. This is what motivated him to start training and he quickly developed the strong muscles that are essential to all great athletes. Mark is very close to his parents and his brother Jason. An electrician by trade, he works as a designer-support coordinator.
