As a youngster, Trinity Lowthian competed in several sports but in 2018 doctors determined that her autonomic nervous system was inexplicably compromised.

She completed her last two years of high school mostly from the hospital and graduated with honours. In May 2022, a return to sport was possible and she inquired with the Ottawa Fencing Club to join as a Para athlete in the wheelchair version of the sport.

Since then, Lowthian has become a multiple Americas champion and a rising star towards Paris 2024.
