WMU Alum to Compete At Paralympics in Rio
Kusku went on to become a member of several medal-winning teams, including the silver medal team at the 2015 ParaPan American Games, the bronze medal team at the 2014 World Goalball Championships, and the silver medal team at the 2011 ParaPan American Games.
Kusku is married and a father and teaches high school math and physics. His wife, Jessica, coaches his team, Michigan Omega.
In a WMU release, Kusku says
"I think my experiences at the 2011 ParaPan Games in Mexico and 2015 in Canada will be similar to our experience in Rio," Kusku is quoted as saying in an article on the U.S. Association of Blind Athletes website. "The ParaPan Am Games are run just like the Paralympics, just on a smaller scale. I'm excited about the large number of athletes from all over the world, living and eating together in the Athlete Village, hanging out with my teammates for three weeks, and watching the Paralympic competition.
