So the Paralympic games are going strong in Rio. Canada’s very own 19 year old Stefan Daniel was able to take the silver medal on Saturday with a time of 1:03:05.
“Today was a historic moment for our sport. I have had to work very hard over the last years to get here. It is a great feeling to stand on the podium, and I’m going to cherish this silver medal forever,” said Daniel.
“Today was the biggest race I’ve ever done. I didn’t feel any pre-race jitters out of the ordinary. I kept telling myself I’ve done this a million times, and ultimately, it was the same guys I’m always around.”
Stefan is only 19 years old which makes him the youngest in the field. He races in the PT4 class and has made all of us Canadians proud.
