Team support is critical at Games


The Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games is here! And as Canada’s Paralympians compete through the Games, we’ll take 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.

Be sure to follow @CDNParalympics on Instagram and Twitter for all the latest news and posts. 

Here’s a quick look at some recent updates: 

The Canadian women’s goalball team nearly made a tremendous comeback against China in a must win game Monday but just fell short. Emma Reinke paid tribute to her teammates.



Tough day at the races for Para cyclist Ross Wilson, a double medallist in Rio, in Tuesday’s time trial. He was appreciative of the support back home.



Keely Shaw, a bronze medallist last week on the track, posted Canada’s best result in the road time trial placing fourth in the women’s C4 category. She was less than a minute from the bronze in the 24 kilometre race.



Para canoer Andrea Nelson received a special message from the Mayor in her hometown of Markham, Ont. as she gets set for her first race on Thursday.



The athletes get most of the spotlight, but we shouldn’t forget the team support staff that assure a smooth delivery.
