At the Parapan American Games in November 2023,  Kyle Tremblay hit a bullseye in the shoot-off to win the bronze medal match in the men’s individual compound open in Para archery. With his performance he locked up a Paralympic quota spot for Canada in the event.

At the Games he also set a personal best score of 683 points in the qualifying round.

As of June 2024, Tremblay is ranked 12th in the world in the event. He helped Canada to the team gold at the 2024 Pan Am Para Archery Championships and added an individual bronze. At that event he just missed his personal best prelim score with 682 points.

He is a five-year national team member who made the cut in his first year in the sport. Tremblay says focusing on working to improve his physical and mental being for his sport helps him deal with the challenges of being a person with a disability.

After taking some time off due to injury, Tremblay re-emerged on the national Para archery scene in 2023. He had previously competed in two Para archery world championships in 2017 in Beijing and 2019 in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands,

In 2023, he was a member of the Canadian team at the world championships in Czechia in the individual men’s compound and team event.

Following the individual preliminaries, Tremblay lost to Michael Meier of Austria in the first round. The match was close and decided in the fifth and final end.

At both the 2019 and 2017 worlds he advanced to the second round of qualification. He helped Canada to gold in the mixed team compound at the 2018 Pan Am Championships.
