Caleb Brousseau Paddling Class 4 Whitewater
Caleb Brousseau lost the use of his legs in a snowboarding accident in 2007. While that would be the end of many people’s careers in action sports, for Caleb it was only the beginning. He has gone on to become one of the best sit-skiers in Canada and won a bronze medal in the Super-G at the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter games. In the summertime this Terrace native descends from the mountains and hits the whitewater. He is a solid level 4 kayaker and his only real difficulty is getting down to access points – steep terrain and wheel chairs don’t mix very well. Caleb brings incredible positivity to anything he is doing, regardless of how difficult it may be. It’s this attitude that has seen him accomplish more than most able-bodied people can even dream. This Kayaker Has Overcome Incredible Adversity To Do What He Loves.
