Brandon Wagner

Brandon Wagner was introduced to wheelchair basketball in 1995 in his hometown of Burlington, ON. He is a competitive person who enjoys the game’s physicality and the challenge of matching up against bigger, stronger players. Given the opportunity Wagner thrives on the defensive mistakes of his opponents.
Wagner’s progress in the sport has been rapid. He made the U23 junior national team in 2005. He was accepted to play at the University of Illinois where his team won the collegiate championships in 2008. In 2009, Wagner was named Student-Athlete of the Year at Illinois and made Canada’s senior national wheelchair basketball team for the first time.
This will be Wagner’s first Paralympic Games. He was part of the Canadian team that won silver at the 2007 Parapan American Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and bronze in 2011 at Guadalajara, Mexico.
