Three new members and a returning athlete have been elected this week


Three new members and a returning athlete have been elected to the Canadian Paralympic Committee’s Athletes’ Council following voting this past week. 

Rob Armstrong (Ice Hockey), Jennifer Brown (Athletics), and Alison Levine (Boccia) were elected as new members of the council, while incumbent Tony Walby (Judo) was also selected for another term. 

They will join current members Erica Gavel (Basketball), Kirk Schornstein (Alpine Skiing), and Ross Wilson (Cycling) to form the seven-member Athletes’ Council. 

Departing the Council following the successful conclusion of their terms are chair Chelsey Gotell (Swimming), Brad Bowden (Ice Hockey), and Meghan Montgomery (Rowing). 

The CPC would like to thank Chelsey for her unwavering leadership and dedication as chair as well as Brad and Meghan for their vast contributions over the years and commitment to advancing Paralympic sport in Canada.  

A new chair will be voted on by the members of the council before the end of the year. 

The CPC Athletes’ Council is an elected group of current and retired Paralympians who serve as the collective voice of the athletes, advocating for the best interests of Canada’s Paralympic athletes and the Paralympic Movement within Canada.
