Braydon Luscombe

 

Braydon Luscombe is a former prospect athlete who moved up to the national team in 2011 after forerunning at the Vancouver 2010 Paralympic Winter Games. He’s recorded eight top-10 finishes at IPC World Cup and world championship events since his first World Cup season (2012). He became the men’s Canadian giant slalom champion in 2013.

He made his Paralympic Winter Games debut in Sochi in 2014.

Luscombe had his right leg amputated after contracting necrotizing fasciitis (flesh-eating disease) as a child and competes in the standing category. At the 2013 IPC World Cup finals in Sochi, Luscombe had a promising fifth-place finish in slalom – a confidence booster that he will build on as he enters the best years of his career.

Luscombe admires his co-competitors and teammates.  Off the slopes, he likes to road cycle and is known on the team for his sense of humour. He is a talented artist who designs tattoos in sketchbooks that often accompany him on the road.
