Full Name: Andrew Genge
Hometown: Oshawa, ON
Residence: Whistler, BC
Stance on board: Regular
Entering his second straight year on the national team, Andrew Genge only has one goal on his mind : A gold medal at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Paralympic Games. After suffering a stroke at the age of 15 following a horrific Rugby tackle, "Genger" was back on his board only 5 months later, and hasn’t looked back since.
Genge burst onto the competition scene in 2016, where he took home the bronze medal at his first ever para-snowboardcross World Cup event at Big White Ski Resort in Kelowna, BC and took home second place at the Sports Experts Speed Nation Nationals in Chantecler, QC. Self describing his riding style as "chill yet competitive" Genge was named to the national team for the first time in 2017, and he continued to impress with another World Cup bronze, a 4th at the PyeongChang 2018 official test event World Cup, and a pair of top ten finishes at the Big White 2017 World Para Snowboard Championships.
When not riding, he can be found in the gym or on his mountain bike, preparing for his next time on snow.
