Pam Le Jean has emerged as one of Canada’s best throwers in para-athletics over the past couple of years, and 2015 was her breakthrough season despite some nagging injuries. At the Toronto 2015 Parapan American Games, she collected gold in the shotput and bronze in the javelin. A few weeks later at the 2015 IPC World Championships, she notched a silver in the shotput.

Two years earlier at the 2013 worlds in Lyon, LeJean emerged on the international scene in spectacular fashion with bronze in shotput and fifth in javelin.

LeJean had previously played wheelchair basketball, but was forced to stop due to recurring tendinitis in her shoulders. She took up para-athletics after the sport was suggested to her by her strength coach. LeJean began para-athletics in 2013 at the Valley Athletics Academy in Kentville, N.S.

I'm not sure if you could tell from yesterday's caption, but I was trying very hard to play it cool. In reality, not only am I extremely uncool but it turns out that the result of the race meant so much to me that I made this face when I crossed the finish line 😝
.
I'm very grateful to get the win and the IAAF World Championship standard! Thank you to @usatf for putting on another great meet and also to the state of California for existing.
