Jillian MacSween, an early childhood education student at George Brown College, took part in the 2015 Toronto Parapan Am Games as a Goalball player and torchbearer.

MacSween won a bronze medal and qualified with her team for the 2016 Paralympics in Rio. Living by her motto “you can always be better,” she took part in a sport where visually impaired and blind athletes try to stop a heavy ball with bells while wearing blindfolds.

Team Canada brought home 168 medals at the 2015 Parapan Am Games with 50 gold, 63 silver, and 55 bronze medals.
