This three-time Paralympic Champion and six-time World Champion in wheelchair racing is living proof that focus, determination, and spirit are the keys to achieving “gold medal” dreams. Combining his unique understanding of life’s challenges with his experience as a world-class athlete, Jeff Adams shares proven methods that help people meet their goals and achieve success. He has faced monumental challenges admirably, competing in six consecutive Summer Paralympics, from 1988 to 2008, and winning a total of three gold, four silver, and six bronze medals.
After retiring from competition, Adams transitioned from sport to business, founding two medical device engineering companies, which he sold in 2016 to return to school to study law. A graduate of Osgoode Hall Law School, Adams was called to the Ontario Bar in June 2021 and is currently working at Fasken Martineau LLP, a Bay Street law firm, specializing in labour and employment and human rights law.
Adams previously served co-Chair of the Ontarians with Disability Advisory Council and the Equity Advisory Group at the Law Society of Ontario. In 2018, he was inducted into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame.
