After a helicopter accident in 2007 changed his life, wheelchair curler Mark Ideson had initially avoided any sports he had played before. The 46-year-old had played hockey, baseball, and curled, but had anxiety about trying to get back in sports.
Wheelchair curler Collinda Joseph was pleased with how her first Paralympic experience went, especially the reward at the end.
The 56-year-old Stittsville, Ont., native was the alternate on the Canadian rink that won bronze on March 11 by defeating Slovakia, 8-3. She appeared in one game in Beijing.
