Robert Hudson

 

Robert Hudson is a passionate athlete with the drive to strive for the podium. He trains hard three hours a day; every other day shooting, and cardio and muscle training in between. Hudson also leads an active life outside of training with his own small machines mechanical business and numerous outdoor hobbies. As a part of the Spirited Arrows shooting club in Saskatchewan, he takes his son shooting and has helped him achieve a high ranking in Canada in archery too.

Hudson was involved in a snowmobile accident in 2003 that left him a paraplegic. He has never been the type of person to sit around and do nothing, so he did not let his newly-acquired disability affect his lifestyle. 

Throughout his sport career, Hudson has learned the value of perseverance and determination. His fellow teammate, Kevin Evans, has been influential in helping Hudson. He now knows what it takes to overcome obstacles such as medical issues as a paraplegic and he says this makes him a stronger person.

Since Hudson started competing in 2005, he has competed at five World Championships, and to prepare, he competes in major competitions across the USA and Canada. Hudson’s first World Championship competition in Italy 2005 and the bronze medal he won in the team event in Korea 2007 are his top moments so far in his career.

Hudson captured the silver medal at the 2011 Parapan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico.
