View Alexis Guimond's bio here. 

Ever since I was a child, I have dreamt of achieving Paralympic greatness. Growing up with a disability (hemiparesis/cerebral palsy), I knew the road ahead of me would be difficult and full of obstacles. Through the years, I’ve works towards this dream with my fair share of struggles. But those struggles made me who I am today. For the past 7-8 years I have been a part of the Canadian Para-Alpine Ski Team. I’ve competed around the world and went to two Paralympic Games. I’ve dedicated my whole life to my craft, chasing this one dream of being a Paralympic champion. The road has been challenging, full of ups and downs, but the passion lives on. Alexis Guimond Double Paralympic Medalist Member of the Canadian Para-Alpine Ski Team
