Brousseau realizes Paralympic dream

Terrace B.C.'s Caleb Brousseau wins bronze in the men's sitting division of the men's super-G, realizing a Paralympic dream.

Canadian sit skier Caleb Brosseau celebrates his Bronze medal win in the men's Super G sitting event at the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi Russia.

Terrace has its first medal ever from the Paralympics.

Caleb Brousseau earned bronze with his time of 1:22.05 in the men’s sitting division of the men’s super-G, realizing a Paralympic dream sparked by watching the Vancouver 2010 Paralympics, reported the Canadian Paralympic Committee following the race.

“My mind is just blown right now,” said Brousseau after the race March 9.

“My heart is hardly staying inside of my chest cavity. This is absolutely amazing and I’m stoked to have ramped things up this hard. I can’t wait to step on the podium.”

Brousseau, who was the ninth racer out of the gate in the sitting category, faced a nerve-wracking wait in the leader box as he watched more than two-thirds of the field try unsuccessfully to reach the podium.

“I’m amazed that I still have skin on my fingers! I was so nervous watching everyone coming down,” he said of winning his first Paralympic medal.

“This result makes me feel really good about my skiing. I think it really sets me up to push things even further. There’s so much our team can do on this hill.”

In the first run of the men’s super combined slalom sitting category, Brousseau did not finish March 11.

The second run has been re-scheduled for March 14 at  5 a.m. Terrace time.

On March 13, the first run and second runs of the men’s slalom are scheduled for 6:55 a.m. and 9:35 a.m. Terrace time.
