Biography

Anthony Létourneau, who at the age of 17 became a quadriplegic as a result of a hockey accident, was introduced to wheelchair rugby in September 2014. Following a few practices, he quickly became hooked on the physical and tactical aspects of the sport, which he found to be quite similar to hockey. Anthony, therefore, decided to commit himself to wheelchair rugby, by getting himself a rugby wheelchair and joining a club team.

Fast-forward three years and Anthony, through determination and perseverance, has achieved a place on the Canadian national team. Undoubtedly an exciting landmark for Anthony, but to him, it’s just the start of what he hopes to achieve in the sport. His eyes are now set on representing Canada at the 2019 Parapan American Games in Peru and the 2020 Summer Paralympics in Tokyo.
