SPORT: SLEDGE HOCKEY
ASPIRATIONS: TEAM CANADA - 2022 PARALYMPICS (BEIJING, CHINA)
BIO: Cody, a Mount Royal University Student taking Cellular and Molecular Biology, currently plays and is an assistant captain for Team Alberta (defending national champions), as well as the Edmonton Impact. At the young age of 12, Cody lost one of his legs as a result of necessary treatment for Osteosarcoma. Competitive sports were then placed on the back burner for Cody as it was difficult to become involved in competitive sports as an amputee. Sledge Hockey was first introduced to Cody in late 2014 at the Calgary Sledge Hockey Association.
Cody has proven himself as a competitive athlete early on by making Team Alberta in only his second year of playing Sledge Hockey. Having since won a National Championship and multiple other tournaments, Cody looks to use his experience at Team Canada Development Camps to break the Canadian Roster for the 2022 Olympics. On top of Cody's Olympic dreams, he also aspires to be an advocate for children with disabilities to pursue their dreams.
