In July 2005, Marie-Claude Molnar was hit by a speeding driver, leaving her between life and death. Despite suffering from head trauma, a partial amputation of both arms, multiple leg fractures as well as a cognitive disorder, Marie-Claude defied all odds and then proceeded to become one of the best paracyclists in Canadian history. Because of her accident, the Longueuil-born cyclist does not have the same level of energy as her peers. Marie-Claude Molnar started paracycling over 15 years ago. She was able to showcase her talent at the 2012 summer paralympic games in London and secured a bronze medal at the C4 individual time trial event. Last year, the Canadian earned two rainbow jerseys at the world championships held in Portugal from June 9th to 13th 2021.
