SOCHI, March 10, /ITAR-TASS/. Canadian Alpine Skier Caleb Brousseau, who won the bronze medal in the Men’s Super-G Sitting at the 2014 Winter Paralympics in Russia’s Sochi on Sunday, never hesitated to answer whom he dedicated his medal to.
“Today I dedicate my medal to my fianc· Andrea Dziewior and I feel amazing about this,” Brousseau said with a wide smile.
“It’s been a long time to come in and wrapping this for the last four years and working really hard to get to this place, so it’s just exhilarating for sure,” the 25-year-old Canadian athlete told an Itar-Tass correspondent.
Brousseau tried para-skiing shortly after breaking his back in an accident in 2007, when he sustained spinal cord injuries. However, before the Sochi Paralympics he participated in Spain’s La Molina World Championship in 2013 and other high-ranking-tournaments.
The Canadian team won on Sunday two bronze medals and one silver and Brousseau said it was a very good figure for Team Canada just for the one day.
“It’s been a great achievement for today for Canada and it’s been amazing,” Brousseau said. “I just don’t know how it will go on from now.”
Some hours after the interview, Brousseau’s teammate Brian McKeever brought Canada gold in Cross Country Skiing Men's 20 km Classic, Visually Impaired.
