More Canadian athletes arriving in Tokyo


The Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games is finally here! And as Canada’s Paralympians compete over the next two weeks, 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: 

Para swimmer Nicolas-Guy Turbide earned a second career Paralympic Games medal with silver in the 100m backstroke S13. Mom was quick to send a message on Facebook.

We anticipate Prime Minister Trudeau will be busy over the next couple of weeks.




Stefan Daniel provided an update on Canada’s Para triathlon team as it checked out the competition venue. Daniel and Kamylle Frenette race on Sunday while Jessica Tuomela and her guide Marianne Hogan go on Saturday.



This may be the toughest part of race preparation, but Danielle Dorris is going to be at her best in Para swimming.



Tokyo 2020 is a sixth Paralympic Games for Para archer Karen Van Nest. She was actually a pistol shooter at her first three Games before switching to a more ancient target sport.



Here are Canada’s three paddlers arriving in Tokyo for the Games: Andrea Nelson, Brianna Hennessy and Mathieu St-Pierre. The Pare canoe races are September 2-4.
