Danik Allard began his parasport career playing para ice hockey and swimming. When he wanted to take up a new sport in 2012, his mum signed him up for boccia and since then his passion for the sport has only grown. For Allard, boccia is an avenue to gain more confidence, travel to new places, overcome challenges in competition and meet new people. In 2019, Allard showed the world what he is capable of. He was the young star of the year, having climbed to 14th position in world ranks after only two international appearances in 2019 punching his ticket to the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics, where he competed in the individual BC2 class event.
