Jason Crone began his sports career as a high-level hockey and lacrosse player. In 2003, his minor midget AA team won the provincial championships and he’d also won a zone championship title with his lacrosse team. All that changed when, at 15, he sustained a spinal cord injury during a hockey game. When he started playing wheelchair rugby in 2006, his athletic background helped him to adapt quickly to his new sport. He made the national team just a year later. After winning bronze at the 2008 Beijing Paralympics and silver at the 2012 London Paralympics, Jason decided to retire to open a snow removal company. Now, he’s coming out of retirement in hopes of earning a chance to compete at the 2015 ParaPan Am Games on home soil.
