Member of the Order of Canada, Benoit was born with a disability in his right leg commonly known as clubfoot. He started swimming at the age of 8 years. He became, in the last 20 years, one of Canada’s most decorated Paralympic athletes with 20 medals in five Paralympic Games.
Member of the Canadian national team since 1998, he has won 32 medals in five World Championships, lowering more than 50 world records in his category.
He is always very involved in various causes involving youth, the next generation and sport. He is an ambassador for Right to Play Foundation and has even created his own the Benoît Huot Foundation. It aims to help young athletes who hope to participate one day in the Paralympic Games.
His biggest dreams are now to help the next generation, to inspire others to look beyond their own boundaries and motivate anyone who aims to realize their dreams, which he does very well by sharing his PASSION for life.
