My name is Anthony Lue.
I'm competing represent Team Canada in the 2016 Paralympics in Rio
Four years ago, my life changed in the blink of an eye when an industrial accident left me with a severe spinal cord injury. I was a provincial athlete paralyzed from the waist down, and at the time I felt my hopes, dreams and future were shattered.
I knew I had to learn to view the world through a new lens and overcome daily barriers in an effort to live a life that was both fulfilling and inspiring. So, despite my spinal cord injury, I made a conscious decision to persevere, build new dreams -- and triumph in the face of life’s adversities.
Today, I’m an entrepreneur building a career in business, a motivational speaker, broadcaster and a competitive handcyclist with my sights set on the Gold in the 2016 Rio Paralympics games.
I will achieve my Olympic dreams by continuing to work furiously, inspiring others through my life’s message with raw passion, startling reality and perseverance.
I am pushing forward!
