Nathan Stein

 

A steady improvement since injuries derailed his 2013 season has put Nathan Stein back in the medal picture for Canada at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. In 2015, he collected four silver medals at the Parapan American Games in Toronto and notched bronze medals in the 50-m and 100-m freestyles at the IPC World Championships.

At the Pan Pacific Para-swimming Championships in Pasadena, the biggest event of the year for Canadian para-swimmers in 2014, Stein won two medals, lowering teammate Benoit Huot’s Canadian record in both. In the S10 100-m butterfly he took the gold and added a silver in the 100-m freestyle.

At the London 2012 Paralympic Games, Stein won the silver medal in the 50-m freestyle in Canadian record time.
