My name is Pierre Ouellet from Quebec City Canada. I am the former Aquathlon double world champion in 2012 and 2013, and ranked 5th in the world in paratriathlon in 2012. My life's goal it is to make the starting line in paratriathlon at the Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in September 2016, and I need your help to get there.
The next 11 months will require extreme personal and financial sacrifice in order to be in the best condition and have the most success in my qualifying races to get to Rio. I have no corporate sponsorship (though I am delighted to welcome potential companies who may be interested), and have no support from my country's athletic federation in order to race, travel and train for the Games in September. With the rigors of training, fueling, and recovering properly, I will have to dedicate myself full-time to my athletic pursuits in the winter season, putting my career as a massage therapist on a temporary hold.
I love electronic music and love to play with it. I was listening to electronic music since 20 years old. My favorite sound is progressive, Chicago house and techno music.
Before my Dj debut, in 2002, I was a co animator on a house radio show in Québec city and follow local dj talent, SAUL B, ALEX AXX KOSS, SAILLANT, MYCELIUM and others. Developing friendship with them and falling in love with the art of working on table desk and mixing all thoses nice sounds together, I started work as a Dj in 2008 in night club call K Club Lounge and SONAR night club.I was played especially Chicago house style music in every Friday night for two years. In 2010 I developed the idea of working as a Dj in cycling spinning training activty in a health sport center.
On May 6 2010, I realized one of my Dj dream! Playing in the biggest nightclub in the City. Le Dagober. I did Dj for opening the night for and played along side DJ PREACH. After having realized one of dj dream I stop Dj to concentrate my time for my Paralympics triathlon season. I am still have one Dj dream! It is doing a set of 2 hour in a afterhour club or in a big rave event!
What about now my triathlon life 's goal! Please read my story below:
Pierre Ouellet, paraplegic athlete Bio:
At age 12, I was a promising motocross athlete who already aspired to be a future champion and make it a professional career. In 1993, at age 16, I had a serious accident damaging my spinal cord, and became a paraplegic. Within three short years, I began competing in wheelchair races. I narrowly missed qualifications for the Paralympic Games in Sydney in 2000 and those of Greece in 2004.
After 5 years of retirement from the track as a wheelchair racer, I became Canadian National champion in paratriathlon in my very first year of competition! I finished with a bronze medal the following year at the World Championships. This began my return to top-level competition and a new opportunity to return to the Paralympic Games in an exciting new sport for athletes with disabilities.
It is a blessing, as new para athletes call me frequently so I can offer them a helping hand, leads on adatptive equipment, and training and racing advice about this new Paralympic sport. Thank you for your consideration and your extreme generosity in supporting this paratriathlete's dream of racing in the Paralympic Games.EVERY dollar is utilized towards racing, training and travel, and it takes
your support to get there.
