PARKSVILLE — Michelle Stilwell is, without a doubt, the face of the Paralympic Games around these parts. It’s a face that’s invariably smiling, and if all goes to plan, she may soon have two more gold medals to smile about.

The 38-year-old mother from Nanoose Bay is in London this month to compete in her third Paralympic Games.

She is joined there by former Parksville athlete Trevor Hirschfield, who is on the Canadian Wheelchair Rugby team.

Both of these athletes are front-and-centre over in London and News readers can read a bit about their achievements in today’s sports section, starting on page A43.
