Patrice Simard

 

Patrice Simard started playing wheelchair rugby in 1997 after he sustained a spinal cord injury in a car accident. His athleticism and intelligence allowed him to climb the ranks quickly in the sport. He made the national team in 1999.

Today, Simard is known for being one of the best low-point players in the world. His strength and quickness allow him to defend players well above his classification and he is one of the few low-point players to play a major scoring role.
