NS Hall of Fame inductee – Sarah Baker

Sarah Baker (Athlete Category), of Seabright, is a multi-Paralympic medalist in swimming, javelin and wheelchair basketball, winning gold in javelin and discus and bronze in swimming at the 1980 Games. Baker also holds multiple Para Pan Am medals (after competing in all three events in a single Games), a world record in javelin and a reputation as one of the greatest wheelchair multi-sport athletes of all time. Faced with health setbacks at a young age, Baker not only overcame the challenges but thrived as a triple threat in Paralympic sport, even as the only female player on the Nova Scotia Flying Wheels wheelchair basketball team. With Para Pan Am gold in basketball and backstroke, three National Games gold medals and her Paralympic success, Baker has been honoured as a Para Pan Am torch bearer and a dinner guest of the Prime Minister and Queen.
