Mitchell Chase took fourth spot in the 1500m in his Paralympic Games debut in 2016. He emerged as one of Canada’s most promising young track and field stars at the 2015 Parapan American Games in Toronto, where he won the gold medal in the T38 800-m.
A few weeks later he cracked the top-five in the same event at the IPC World Championships. He started running cross-country in Grade 2 at public school and transitioned to include track in high school.
He competes in the middle distances (400m, 800m 1500m, 3000m) and he is also an excellent cross country runner.
