ASRAB is incredibly proud of Viviane Forest – for being named to the Canadian Paralympic Hall of Fame – 2019 Induction.
The honor is highly deserved, as Viviane was the first Canadian to win gold at both a summer and winter Paralympic Games. Her performance on the slopes was a highlight of Vancouver 2010, winning one gold, three silver, and one bronze in the sport of Para alpine skiing.
These medals were added to the two goalball gold medals she won earlier in 2000 and 2004.

Viviane states: “I feel honored. I’m grateful I found blind sport federations to support me during my career. I also feel privileged to be able to give back to blind sport and inspire future generations.”
Though retired from Paralympic sport, Viviane continues to participate in a wide range of ASRAB sports activities including: SeeHawks Blind Hockey, dragon boat, goalball (coaching) … and most recently lawn bowls!
We wish Viviane a magical evening at the Hall of Fame Gala, and look forward to seeing her on the field, on the snow, on the ice and coaching.
