Classification

Mathieu St-Pierre earned his first career Paralympic Games spot in May 2021 with a fifth-place finish in the VL2 200-m at a Word Cup event in Hungary. It was also the best international result of his career despite the fact he missed two months of training in the winter due to hip ulcers which required a skin graft.

After the operation his hip was two inches thicker and a fundraiser was held to help him get a new seat for his boat. 

He has competed at the last two world championships in Para canoe. He placed seventh in 2018 and was 11th in 2019 in the VL2 200-m. In late 2019, he was eighth in the same event at a test competition at the Paralympic Games venue. He joined the national team in 2017.
