A fantastic Chronicle Herald profile of stellar Nova Scotian goalball athlete, and Blind Sports NS Chair, Peter Parsons! We love seeing parasport and its athletes getting mainstream attention like this.
“I used to think, when I was 40, oh, maybe I have two years left, maybe I have five years left,” says Parsons. “But I’ve stopped doing that. I think I was putting a time limit on myself because that’s kind of what the norm is. But now I’m 45 and I’ve just decided to stop saying that. I’ll basically keep playing until I don’t enjoy it anymore.” – Peter Parsons
We are excited to announce that goalball is back in action in Halifax! Please visit our Goalball Page for Covid-19 precautions and schedules.
