Olympian Eric Lamaze Battling Brain Tumour

Canada’s most decorated Olympic Show Jumping rider, Eric Lamaze confirmed earlier this week that he is battling a brain tumour.

The 51 year-old Montreal native said that he has been dealing with cancer for the last 18 months.

Despite that, he competed as recently as last month in the 2019 Winter Equestrian Festival Grand Prix where he finished 12th.

Lamaze, who captured a gold and a silver medal in the 2008 Olympics and a bronze in 2016 said “I had decided to continue riding until the day when I couldn’t anymore.”
