(Fredericton, N.B.) Former Team Canada great Dave Durepos is among the 2014 class of inductees into the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame.
Durepos, one of the best outside shooters the game has ever seen, will be inducted at a formal ceremony on June 7, 2014 in St. Stephen, N.B.
The Fredericton native recently announced his retirement from the Canadian Senior Men’s National Team that through his nineteen-year career he helped grow into the premiere wheelchair basketball program in the world.
A five-time Paralympian, Durepos captured three gold medals and one silver for Canada at the Paralympic Games. He captained Canada to its first-ever Paralympic gold medal in 2000 in Sydney, Australia. With the victory in Sydney, Durepos became the first-ever athlete to bring home an Olympic or Paralympic gold for the province of New Brunswick.
Durepos also competed in five world championships, winning another gold and three bronze medals to go along with an all-star team nod at the 1998 World Championship.
