Canadian Paralympian Michelle Stilwell's gold medal goes missing
Box containing prize possession disappeared when former B.C. cabinet minister moved offices
Former paralympian and politician Michelle Stilwell says one of her gold medals has gone missing from an office at British Columbia's legislature.
The former cabinet minister says when she moved offices following last May's provincial election a box containing one of her world championship gold medals disappeared.
Stilwell says in a statement she kept the medal in her office from her time as a wheelchair athlete to show visitors because she was proud of the achievement and wanted to share her accomplishments with others.
Stilwell won six Paralympic gold medals in both basketball and track, in addition to being a nine time world champion.
She is asking anybody with information that might help find the medal to come forward.
Stilwell says the medal is priceless to her and represents the hard work and sacrifices she endured to earn the victory.
