Bruno Haché

 

Bruno Haché enjoyed a great start to the 2015 season as he was the leading scorer with 27 goals at the Montreal Invitational Goalball Tournament which drew 16 teams from the U.S. and Canada.

Haché got involved in goalball at the age of 23, having begun to lose his vision at age 18 due to a hereditary condition. He found a new passion in the sport and credits it for giving him valuable confidence and pride. “Sport is my life,” says Haché.

Haché first competed at the elite level in goalball at an invitational tournament in London in 2001. Since then, he has competed in four world championships and three Paralympic Games. His biggest accomplishment to date is a gold medal at the Parapan American Games in Rio in 2007. Haché also competed at the 2011 Parapan American Games, where the team placed fourth.

For the Toronto 2015 Parapan Ams, Haché is aiming for gold and qualifying Canada for the 2016 Paralympic Games. He abides by the motto: “A quitter never wins. A winner never quits.”

In his spare time, Haché enjoys camping, fishing, and playing hockey and basketball. He works as a maintenance worker at the Institut Nazareth & Louis Braille in Dorval, Quebec.
