Kevin Rempel has surmounted incredible life-challenges to reach the Olympic podium and now to bring his powerful message of hope and resilience to audiences through his speaking and writing.

 

Kevin Rempel is a 2013 World Champion and 2014 Sochi Paralympic bronze medalist in sledge hockey with an incredible story of overcoming a tremendous amount of adversity.

 




After a freestyle motocross accident left Kevin an incomplete paraplegic at the age of 23, he was told by doctors he would likely never walk again. That following year, “Remps” as he likes to be called by his friends, was determined.

 

He willed himself to move one toe, then another, then another until – eventually – he not only walked again, but was able to become one of Canada’s best Paralympic athletes, earning a bronze medal at the 2014 Paralympics in Sochi, Russia.

 

Since then, he has travelled the world, inspired thousands of people, and has been featured around the world in media such as CBC, TSN, and BBC Sport.
