Charles Moreau


Charles Moreau is an accomplished athlete and a burgeoning chiropractor. After a serious car accident left him a paraplegic in January 2008, Moreau was able to resume his athletic career by the end of that year. He quickly excelled in para triathlon (he was a triathlete before his accident) and won the silver medal at the 2009 World Championships, followed by fourth-place finishes at the following three worlds.

One of the events in the TRI-1 para triathlon is hand cycling and in 2013, Moreau decided to focus solely on that sport in the lead up to the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. In Rio, Moreau was one of Canada's top riders earning bronze in both the time trial and road race in the Handcycle 3 category. His success continued a year later in 2017 with a bronze medal performance in the time trial at the world championships.

Moreau produced a strong 2014 season where he placed seventh in both the time trial and road race at the UCI World Championships in South Carolina. That performance came on the heels of winning his first Canadian title which he earned in the time trial despite a tough course and record 12-man field in addition to his chain coming off twice.

In 2015, he won two bronze medals on the World Cup in addition to two bronze medals, in the road race and time trial, at the Toronto 2015 Parapan American Games.

In 2016 at his only World Cup event, Moreau took gold in the time trial and fourth in the road after mechanical difficulties. Another 2016 highlight was the birth of his first child upon his return from the World Cup.

Moreau studied chiropractic at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières and would like to return to his chosen profession once he reaches his athletic goals.
