Ste­fan Daniel

Last year’s sil­ver medal­list at the Par­a­lympics, Ste­fan Daniel is the bright light of the na­tional pro­gram these days, with a le­git­i­mate shot at gold in 2020. Daniel is no stranger to high-per­for­mance rac­ing – we named him the TMC Triath­lete of the Year for 2015 thanks to his amaz­ing sea­son that in­cluded a para­triathlon world cham­pi­onship and the na­tional ju­nior ti­tle (over the best able-bod­ied ju­niors in the coun­try).

The 20-year-old from Cal­gary was born with bi­lat­eral ra­dial club hands – his right arm is more af­fected than the left. He turned to triathlon af­ter win­ning na­tional ti­tles in cross coun­try run­ning and suc­cess in para-swim­ming.
