Paralympic Games start in just 50 days


Canada’s Paralympians are staying busy, training, back to competing, sharing their stories and opinions on social media, and more. We will check in regularly with what the nation’s Para athletes have been up to and share some of the top highlights here. 

Here’s a quick look at some recent updates: 

Tokyo hopeful Cindy Ouellet is currently tuning up for a fifth career Paralympic Games (which includes one Winter Games in Para nordic skiing) and hopes to help Canada return to the podium in women’s wheelchair basketball.



Discus thrower Renee Foessel is on a record-setting pace as she trains for Tokyo while also working in records and information management with the City of Barrie.



There was big news for Canada in Para rowing last week as mixed pairs Jeremy Hall and Jessye Brockway earned a quota spot for Canada for the Tokyo Games via the World Rowing Federation bipartite quota allocation. 



Victoria Nolan, who qualified for nomination to her third Paralympic Games in Para rowing last month talked about her experience at the last chance qualifier with AMI-TV, where she also co-hosts AMI This Week.



Finally Canadian medal hopeful triathlete Stefan Daniel sends us another dazzling photo this time from San Diego where he is starting his third and final training block for Tokyo.
