Reginald Muise of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia was paralysed after an auto accident in 1959. He realized that his fitness level would drop if he became inactive, which is when his perseverance and dedication began to shine. He used the inspiration of the Flying Wheels basketball club in Halifax as a push to get started and began to wheel a mile a day around town and throwing objects.

Within a few years he qualified for Nova Scotia teams competing at National Championships. He competed in wheelchair sport from 1969 until 1977, winning over 40 medals with 25 of them as gold medals. He set four Canadian throwing records (discus, shotput, javelin and club throw) as well as one world record (shotput) in his disability class.

For Reginald Muise, sports did not come easily, but he worked hard, persevered and achieved. Reginald Muise was inducted into the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame in 1989.
