Nancy Morin


Nancy Morin first started playing goalball at age 19 after volunteering at a goalball tournament in Montreal; subsequently she began practicing with Team Québec. Three years later, in 1997, Morin became a member of the Canadian National Goalball Team.

Growing up with a visual impairment never stopped Morin from playing sports. She was an athletic child and played numerous team sports throughout her youth. Her mother encouraged her involvement in sport and was always a huge support; she even coached some of Morin’s teams.

Today, Morin is an accomplished athlete. She has competed at four Paralympic Games and two Parapan American Games. She won gold medals at the Paralympic Games in Athens in 2004 and Sydney in 2000 and placed fifth in Beijing 2008 and London 2012. At the Toronto 2015 Parapan American Games, she helped Canada to the bronze medal and a berth in Rio.
