Carla Shibley Won GOLD in Para Cycling!

Carla started out as an ASRAB goalball athlete, before taking her determination and athletic talent to the sport of Para cycling.

Lowell Taylor Won Silver in Para Cycling!

ASRAB followed Lowell and his wife Julie’s tenacious participation in The Amazing Race Canada in 2016. Now we can follow Lowell as he races in Para cycling!

Lowell said “Those of us with visual impairments can do more than we think we can and more than society says we can. Though we have limited sight, we can have a lot of vision! My vision for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics is still burning bright! Thank you ASRAB for your support and for enabling so many to pursue meaning and connection through sport!”
