Jolan Wong

 

Jolan Wong brings some international experience to the women’s sitting volleyball team. She was a member of Team Canada at the 2010 World Chamionships.

Wong lost a leg due to bone cancer at age 13 but that didn’t deter her from keeping active. She participated in numerous sports through high school and was also a para-cyclist and played standing amputee hockey until she was 18 before switching to athletics.

At age 14, she began a four-year standing volleyball career with J.R. Robson Marauders until she got involved with sitting volleyball.

The biggest challenge these days for the mother of two is raising her family with her husband while training and travelling and finding a balance between family and sport.
