The Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games is nearly over! But we are still taking the daily pulse of the Games excitement on social media by sharing a few of the best posts from the Canadian Paralympic Team, its fans, and Canadian media.
Here’s a quick look at some recent updates:
Nate Riech is still processing that he is a Paralympic champion! Well, some well-known folks are reminding him.
Paralympic Champion, that sounds really weird. It's such an honor, it definitely hasn't set in yet. I will post a more detailed post in a couple days after I take some time to reflect.— Nate Riech (@NateGraywolf) September 5, 2021
Thank you everyone for the support!

Absolutely smashing stuff from these two, both setting Paralympic records in their respective classification!@NateGraywolf is possibly the loudest and most supportive teammate for the entire @AthleticsCanada squad so if you aren’t following him on here/ IG you should be! https://t.co/jMhWjK7lqp— Evan Dunfee (@EvanDunfee) September 4, 2021
Para shooter Lyne Tremblay made a little video and posted photos on Facebook to thank the Japanese volunteers at the Games.
All three Canadian Para canoers - Andrea Nelson, Brianna Hennessy and Mathieu St-Pierre – reached finals in their Games debut in Tokyo.
Fourth place finishes are never easy but both discus thrower Renee Foessel and sitting volleyball player Angelena Dolezar know the future is bright.
