Chernove now has four career Paralympic medals


Canada’s Tristen Chernove (Cranbrook, BC) has won the country’s first silver medal of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, finishing second in the men’s C1 3000m individual pursuit in Para track cycling on Thursday. He qualified for the gold-medal race in second position, with RPC’s Mikhail Astashov then the resounding winner after overtaking in the final. 

Competing in his second Paralympic Games, Chernove matched his performance in this same event (but in the C2 classification) from five years ago. He was one of Canada’s top athletes at Rio 2016, and now has four Paralympic medals (one gold, two silver, and one bronze). The 46-year-old will next race in the track time trial on Friday.
