Toronto – Nik Goncin credits wheelchair basketball with giving him a renewed sense of direction in his life after he lost his left leg to cancer at the age of 15. A rising star since he began playing the sport in 2008, Goncin is poised for the biggest year yet of his career with his compass firmly set towards Tokyo 2020 and a growing desire to give back to the sport.

“Tokyo 2020 will be my second Games experience so my approach is going to be completely different,” said Goncin. “I’m four years older and I’m at a different place in my life.”

Goncin feels much more comfortable with his game and knows what to expect going into Tokyo thanks to previous team trips to Japan. With less than a year to go before the Paralympics, he also recognizes there is much work still to be done.

“I’m confident that I will be where I want to be come Tokyo 2020.”
