Iulian Ciobanu burst on to the boccia scene in 2015, making his first national squad just one year after taking up the sport. Ciobanu played a key role in the BC4 pair’s gold medal performance at the 2015 Americas Team Pair Championships in Montreal. His calm exterior and poise on court have made him a strong member of the squad. Now playing boccia full time, Iulian’s sights are firmly set on Tokyo 2020.
