Simon Tremblay

Simon Tremblay first got involved in goalball in 2006 at age 24. A few years later, in 2009, Tremblay joined the Canadian National Goalball Team and competed in his first international competition: the IBSA Pan American Games. Since then, Tremblay has competed all over the world with his team.

Tremblay acquired a visual impairment in 2002 as the result of a car accident. Following his accident, he was encouraged by his Braille teacher to get involved in sport. Since taking up goalball, the most influential person in Tremblay’s sporting career has been his teammate, Mario Caron.

Tremblay says that sport has given him a goal in life and has allowed him to push and surpass his limits. It has also allowed him to travel the world and compete against the best. From sport, he has gained discipline, responsibility and health. Tremblay has a heavy training schedule and can be found in the gym or at his team practices six to seven times a week.

His career highlight is winning a bronze medal at the 2011 Paralympic Qualifying Tournament in Turkey. Tremblay also competed at the 2011 Parapan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico, where the team placed fourth.

His goal for London is to win a gold medal. Tremblay is looking forward to putting new techniques into practice and is hoping that they will lead him and his team to success.

Tremblay is a massage therapist and part-time waiter. He enjoys cycling, music and walks.
