Lakeshore Foundation has a long history of promoting the Olympic and Paralympic movement. In fact, Lakeshore has produced 52 Paralympic athletes, coaches and staff, and those athletes have captured 30 Paralympic medals. In 2003, Lakeshore earned the designation as an official United States Olympic Committee Olympic and Paralympic Training Site. Lakeshore is a training site for USA Women’s Goalball and USA Wheelchair Basketball. In addition, Lakeshore is the High Performance Management Organization (HPMO) of USA Wheelchair Rugby. Local Birmingham athletes like three-time Paralympian (track) Josh Roberts and five-time Paralympic medalist (cycling) Jennifer Schuble also train at Lakeshore to reach their Paralympic goals.
