Photograph, Apparel, and Accreditation Pass

Reginald “Reg” Chappell

Swimming, London, United Kingdom

In 2011, Reg was asked to coach Summer Mortimer as a swimmer in the 2012 Summer Paralympics in London. With Reg as her coach, Mortimer won two gold, a silver, and a bronze metal at the games. She also set three world and five Canadian Paralympic records. When speaking about the Team Canada uniform Reg recalls:

“We were given a hockey bag and a backpack full of Team Canada clothes. Plus a list of what to wear on each day of the Games and pictures of some of the uniforms. Our accreditation passes had to be worn absolutely everywhere.”
