Experience

Before she was injured in a diving accident, Miranda Biletski swam and played water polo competitively. While she was in a rehabilitation hospital after her accident, she saw the documentary “Murderball,” which had just been released. Biletski was hooked right there.

She made her Team Canada debut at the 2010 World Wheelchair Rugby Championships and made the team again for the 2014 World Wheelchair Rugby Championships. Though she was selected to the Toronto 2015 Parapan Am Games team, she was unable to compete due to injury.

Biletski was the only woman on Team Canada and is one of only a handful of women to play the sport at an elite level worldwide. At the 2014 World Wheelchair Rugby Championships, she became the first woman to play in a gold medal game at a World Championships.
