Canada at the Paralympics
The Paralympics are back and there is no shortage of great swimming from our Canadian swimmers! Aurélie Rivard captured the bronze in the 50-m freestyle S10, Nicolas-Guy Turbide took the silver in the 100-m backstroke S13, and our very own Danielle Dorris finished just hundredths of a second off the women’s 200 IM SM7 podium. Being only days into the Paralympics there are still many great swims to come and lots of great races to watch!
