Dueck’s destiny realized with Paralympic success.
Born in Kimberley, B.C. Josh Dueck was always destined for the slopes. Six years after an accident changed his plans slightly, he was making his Paralympic debut at the 2010 Paralympic Games in Vancouver where he won a silver medal in the men’s sitting slalom race.
At the Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi, Dueck served as Canada’s flag bearer for the closing ceremony thanks to his silver medal in downhill and gold medal in the super-combined.
Off the slopes, Dueck is also a valued member of the international sport community for his work to advance the Paralympic Movement and inspire others to find their paths.
Josh has been named Chef de Mission for the 2022 Paralympic Winter Games in Beijing, China.
