Anthony Theriault

The top overall Canadian finisher at the Ironman World Championships 1991, Tony Theriault was hit by a car while out on the road training that same year, which led to a life-changing spinal cord injury. However, even now in his early 50s, Theriault has not slowed down. Heading to his second Paralympics in the mixed coxed four event for rowing, Theriault is as determined as ever to reach the podium.

With his rowing teammates, Theriault won the world championships in 2010 and is a 2011 World world championship silver medalist.

Theriault was a recipient of the Harry Jerome Comeback Award from Sport BC in 1999.

Outside of rowing, Theriault and his partner live in Nanaimo, B.C., and enjoy caring for their two labs, Oakley and Scotia. His hobby is stained glass. He holds a BS from the University of Idaho (Recreation & Administration).
