Sonja Gaudet

Location: Vernon
Born:  07/22/1966
Sport: Wheelchair Curling

The world’s most decorated wheelchair curler, inducted into the Canadian Curling Hall of Fame in 2013, Sonja Gaudet will be seeking her third Paralympic gold medal in Sochi to go along with her three World Championship titles (2009, 2011, 2013). Veteran lead Sonja was part of the team when wheelchair curling made its debut as a Paralympic sport in Turin in 2006. Her motto? Giving up is not an option. Seems to be working so far.
