Graeme Murray: The Agitos at the Coastal Paralympic Village

I found the paralympic logo statue Graeme Murray -- biography Graeme Murray is a defender in the Canadian ice sledge hockey team. At the age of three, Murray contracted a virus that attacked the nerves in his lower spine, he was told he might never play sports at all. Murray carried on, and at age 11 he discovered ice sledge hockey and just four years later at age 15 he joined the Canadian men's team. At the Torino 2006 Paralympic Winter Games he captured the gold medal with his team. Murray is a motivational speaker and talks to students about his experiences on and off the ice: ""Sport governs a lot of my life. I've been to school and I enjoy what it has given me, but what I'm really proud of outside my achievements in sports is the fact that I have the opportunity to speak to so many students. Knowing that I've inspired them to be more active and work for the things they want gives me a feeling of pride I cannot describe."" Read his full biography here:
