Byron Green

 

Like many athletes in British Columbia, Byron Green was recruited to wheelchair rugby by the sport’s co-creator, Duncan Campbell. Though Green initially wasn’t interested in wheelchair sports, his passion for wheelchair rugby was sparked when he moved Vancouver to studying engineering at the University of British Columbia.

Green made the national team in 2013 and won silver at the 2014 World Wheelchair Rugby Championships. He is an intelligent, hard-working athlete who is the first to get to practice and the last to leave. He also works as a civil engineer. Green gives back to the community by recruiting new athletes, visiting rehabilitation hospitals and coaching an introductory wheelchair rugby program. He was awarded the 2013 Stan Stronge Award, which is given by the Canadian Wheelchair Sports Association to an athlete with a strong sense of fair play and a dedication to excellence.
