Para cycling


Calgary, AB

Carla Shibley was involved in numerous sports as a youngster but at age 10 she was diagnosed with Stargardt’s disease which left her visually impaired. She would eventually turn to Para sport first with goalball and then she started Para cycling in tandem in 2015. Since then, she has gradually climbed the Canadian ranks. She is on Cycling Canada’s NextGen squad and her goal is to compete at the 2020 Paralympic Games.

At the 2019 Canadian championships she won the gold medal in the road race and added a silver in the time trial.
