Felicia Voss-Shafiq

 

Felicia Voss-Shafiq made her national team debut on the Canadian sitting volleyball team at the Toronto 2015 Parapan American Games. She finished second in team scoring with 29 points as Canada won the bronze and qualified for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

It was only in 2014 that Voss-Shafiq took up the sport on the recommendation of a physiotherapist. She played the abled-bodied version of the sport at the recreational level before her illness. She admits she was quite surprised to be wearing a Team Canada jersey so quickly.

Voss-Shafiq is a below the knee amputee and also has a disability in her right hand caused by a serious illness that occurred in 2011.
