Paralympian Search will be held in Toronto on Sunday

Posted on


National Team Coach Sungmin Son will represent Taekwondo Canada at the Paralympian Search event. This event will be held in Toronto on Sunday, November 26, 2017.

PARALYMPIAN SEARCH is an exciting program designed to identify future potential Paralympic athletes. It is a one-day event offering people with a disability the chance to test their abilities and discover which Paralympic sports they are best suited for.

”A goal of Paralympian Search is to find athletes with strong potential to fast track to podium performances nationally or internationally and to support anyone who comes out to a Search to access appropriate sport opportunities, such as local or club,” said Jenny Davey Manager, Paralympic Pathways for the CPC.

Taekwondo Canada looks forward to identifying future potential para-taekwondo athletes through this event.

Registration is free and can be done at
