OTTAWA – The Canadian Paralympic Committee is deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Nancy Morin at the young age of 44. A proud Paralympian, Nancy was a valued member of the goalball family for decades, maintaining her involvement after her retirement less than two years ago. She represented her country at five Paralympic Games (Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, London 2012, and Rio 2016), winning back-to-back gold medals in Sydney and Athens. She also is a two-time Parapan Am Games bronze medallist (Guadalajara 2011 and Toronto 2015) and most recently helped Canada to a fourth-place finish at the 2018 world championships.

She was a strong leader, a loyal and passionate teammate, and a dedicated representative of the Canadian Paralympic community, sharing her experiences with others to help grow the sport of goalball. Our thoughts are with all of Nancy’s family, friends, and the entire goalball and Canadian Para sport communities during this time.
