Three Time World Champion
Andrew Haley is a champion at all levels! As a child Andrew had cancer twice and each time was given a 35% chance to pull through. Although he lost part of his right leg he never lost his fight and despite the long odds he fought and won and has used that same fight all his life. He is world class Paralympic swimmer and successful businessman who now works for the Toronto Blue Jays. Andrew won Nova Scotia’s Male athlete of the year honours twice and has been his swimming teams Captain. Combining more than 30 years of personal success and failures he has been able to draw on his vast experiences to relate to any situation. Through his life and work, he has inspired countless companies, school kids, individuals, and organizations with his WORLD CLASS mindset. Andrew truly believes that anything is possible and that with a lot of hard work and determination anyone can OWN THE PODIUM.
Andrew’s list of World Class performances is impressive. In his career he won a gold medal at the 1994 Commonwealth Games in Victoria BC and became the first ever disabled athlete in Canada to win a gold medal at this competition. He has also “owned the podium” at World Championships (1998, 2002) and the Paralympic Games (2000) and did so in World Record time. In addition to the medals he has set numerous World and Canadian Records along the way.
Andrew also finds time to give back to his community. He is involved with the charity RIGHT TO PLAY and also visits schools in Ontario and his native Nova Scotia to talk to students about making better choices when it comes to the environment and to be more active. In addition he volunteers his time working with Athletes Can a national group that supports athletes.
