Brian McKeever marks 100 days to Paralympics
Visually impaired cross-country skier also aims to make Olympic team again
There's no doubt that cross-country skier Brian McKeever of Canmore, Alta., is one of Canada's most accomplished Paralympians. Four years ago in Vancouver, he became the first Canadian to make both the Paralympic and Olympic teams.
He never got to race at the Olympics, as coaches didn't select him to compete. But he went on to win three gold medals at the Paralympics, bringing his total medal haul to 10 over three Games.
McKeever admits it took "longer than it should have" to get over the heartbreak of not being chosen to race in Vancouver. But he's determined to give it another shot.
McKeever joined CBC News Network to talk about his latest preparations as we mark 100 days until the start of the Paralympics in Sochi. He believes he can once again make both the Paralympic and Olympic teams — and this time, make it to the start line at both competitions.
