Braydon Luscombe

Para-alpine

A former prospect athlete who moved up to the national team in 2011 after forerunning at the 2010 Vancouver Paralympic Winter Games, Luscombe has recorded eight top-10 finishes at IPC World Cup and world championship events since his first World Cup season (2012), and he became the men’s Canadian giant slalom champion in 2013. He had his leg amputated after contracting necrotizing fasciitis (flesh-eating disease) as a child and competes in the standing category. In the 2015-16 season, Luscombe skied to a career-first podium finish. Luscombe, who calls Duncan, B.C. home, likes to road cycle in his spare time.
