Brendan Gaulin says his passion for sport has helped him improve his teamwork, leadership, and self-confidence. Gaulin first got involved in goalball in 2000, influenced by his sister, Sarah, who played on the Quebec team.

His sister and brother founded a recreational league in Montreal in 1999 and Gaulin quickly became passionate about the sport and took it to the next level, joining the national team. 

Gaulin helped Canada win the bronze medal at the Toronto 2015 Parapan Am Games, which earned the team a berth at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. He was Canada’s top scorer in the tournament and fourth overall with 20 goals in six games.

Rio marked his third Paralympic Games appearance.
