CANADA WINS FOUR MEDALS IN THE TIME TRIAL AT PARAPAN AM GAMES
Lima, Peru (August 31, 2019) – After winning six medals on the track earlier this week, Team Canada continued to race to the podium, capturing four medals in the Individual Time Trial. In his first multi-sport Games, hand cyclist Matthew Kinnie sat atop the mixed H1-5 time trial standings, winning a gold medal in 31:17.880. Michael Shetler also won his first medal, a bronze in the mixed T1-2 time trial.
“Winning the gold medal was a little bit surprising and satisfying after a long season training and working really hard to get a result like that,” said Matthew Kinnie. “To be able to lay down a good race on a nice course down by the coast in Peru was a pretty awesome experience and pretty exciting.”
In the tandem races, Lowell Taylor and pilot Andrew Davidson claimed silver in the mixed tandem time trial, while Carla Shibley and pilot Meghan Lemiski took the bronze.
