Parapan Am bronze medallist to make Paralympic debut

Kyle Tremblay, a Parapan Am bronze medallist, has been nominated to represent Canada in Para archery at the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games, scheduled from August 28 to September 8. This marks his first appearance at the Paralympics, following a successful comeback season and notable performances at major international events.

Kyle Tremblay’s journey to the Paralympics

OTTAWA, ON, June 14, 2024 /CNW/ – Kyle Tremblay, hailing from Deep River, ON, has been officially nominated by the Canadian Paralympic Committee and Archery Canada to compete in Para archery at the upcoming Paris 2024 Paralympic Games. This nomination follows his impressive performance at the Parapan Am Games in Santiago, Chile, where he secured a bronze medal in the men’s compound open category.

A remarkable comeback

Tremblay’s journey to this point has been nothing short of inspiring. After missing three years due to illness, he made a triumphant return to the sport in 2023. His comeback was highlighted by setting a new Canadian record with a qualification score of 703 out of a possible 720. He also competed in his third career world championships (2017, 2019, 2023), where he was Canada’s top qualifier before being eliminated in the early rounds.

Most recently, Tremblay added another bronze medal to his collection at the Para Pan American Championships in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in April. His consistent performances have earned him a well-deserved spot on the Canadian Paralympic Team.

Preparation and perseverance

Reflecting on his journey, Tremblay stated, « Competing at my first Paralympic Games will be the biggest highlight and achievement in my archery career. I have been preparing for this event since coming back to the sport in 2023, knowing that if I put everything I had into it, I could make it. Everything I have learned and had to overcome on my journey to get here has given me the best insight and confidence in myself and has also taught me how I need to prepare for such a big and prestigious event. »

He added, « Although it has taken me longer to get here than I had hoped, I feel that overcoming all the setbacks and putting in the sweat and hours of hard work has given me even more physical strength and mental fortitude to be more prepared for my Paralympic debut. I have always pushed myself to set the bar high, and I am so honoured and proud to represent Canada in archery at the 2024 Paralympic Games! »

Support and encouragement

Josh Vander Vies, co-chef de mission for the Paris 2024 Canadian Paralympic Team, expressed his admiration for Tremblay’s dedication: « I was lucky enough to witness Kyle’s incredible victory in the bronze medal match at the Parapan Am Games last fall, and it is an honour now seven months later to welcome him to his first Paralympic team. It is Kyle’s perseverance, dedication, and passion for archery that has brought him to this career pinnacle, and we can’t wait to cheer him on again in Paris. »

Karolina Wisniewska, co-chef de mission, added, « Congratulations to Kyle on being nominated for his first Paralympic Games. Competing at your first Games is always special, and I encourage him to take it all in, enjoy and savour the experience, and know that the entire team will be behind him the whole way. »
