Dennis Thiessen - Wheelchair Curling

The Sochi 2014 Paralympics will be Dennis Thiessen’s first Games and it’s a dream come true for him. It was only after a two year tryout process that Dennis was named to Canada’s wheelchair curling team in 2012. In 2013, Thiessen was an integral part of Canada taking home gold in the World Wheelchair Curling Championships. Dennis sites Cindy Klassen as someone he uses as inspiration when representing and competing for Team Canada.
