The 2015 season was an unforgettable one for Gordie Michie. At the Toronto 2015 Parapan Am Games he won gold and set a Canadian record in the 100-m backstroke, took silver in the 200-m IM, and bronze in both the 200-m freestyle and 100-m breaststroke.

A few weeks earlier at the 2015 IPC World Championships, Michie set Canadian records in the 200-m IM and 100-m breaststroke, finishing sixth and fifth in those events.
