“I’m really excited to go to my third games. Not many people have the opportunity to go to multiple games, and it is something I definitely don’t take for granted,” said Daniel. “When you’ve been to a couple of games, you realize how unique and special of an experience it is, and how it’s something you’ll look back on forever. I’m excited to compete for Canada again and enjoy the experience as much as I can with my family, friends, and teammates.”

The event has only been included in the Paralympics twice, and Daniel medalled both times. He won silver at Rio 2016 and bronze at Tokyo 2020. The men’s PTS5 racer is a five-time world champion and is currently ranked world No. 1 in his classification.  

Two other athletes were named to Canada's para triathlete team. Kamylle Frenette, of Dieppe, NB, will be making her second appearance in the women’s PTS5 event. Winnipeg’s Leanne Taylor is set to make her Paralympic debut just five years after beginning the sport.

Daniel and Frenette will race on Sept. 1, and Taylor will compete the next day. The team will be coached in Paris by Carolyn Murray.

The Paris 2024 Paralympic Games will take place Aug. 28 to Sept. 8 in Paris, France. Canada is expecting to send a team of approximately 130 athletes.

Daniel attended junior high at St. Timothy High School and trained with the Cochrane Comets at a young age.
