Nathan Clement

 

Nathan Clement’s first career international medal came at the Toronto 2015 Parapan American Games, with a bronze in the 50-m butterfly. Just a few weeks earlier he gained more valuable experience as a member of Canada’s world championship team.

Clement made his national team debut in 2014 at the Pan Pacific Para-swimming Championships in Pasadena, Calif. He reached three individual finals, placing fourth in the 50-m fly and sixth in both the 50-m free and 200-m individual medley, all with personal best times.

Clement took swimming lessons to help him regain mobility on his left side after he suffered a stroke caused by chicken pox at age two. His first international competition was the 2011 Can-Am Championships where he set five personal bests in six races. In 2013, Clement represented Team BC at the Canada Games.
