August 27/19 22:23 pm - Para Cyclists Win 3 More Medals on the Track at Parapan Games

Posted by Editoress on 08/27/19

On Day 2 of competition at the Parapan Games in Lima, Peru, Canada's Para cyclists continued to excel in the velodrome, winning three medals for the second consecutive day. In the women's tandem time trial, Canada stood atop the first two steps of the podium once again, with Annie Bouchard and pilot Evelyne Gagnon pulling off a gold medal time of 1:15.310, and fellow Canadians Carla Shibley and pilot Meghan Lemiski finishing in 1:16.132 for the silver. This is a flip of the result from one day ago in the individual pursuit, with both teams now owning a gold and silver medal from these Games. In the men's tandem time trial, Lowell Taylor and pilot Andrew Davidson missed out on a podium spot by just a tenth of a second, to finish fourth. The duo won a silver medal on the previous day

"It is just amazing, it's a great feeling," said Annie Bouchard. "To represent Canada, we have fought so much, and made so many sacrifices and there are no words today, just wow."

Marie-Claude Molnar, a Games veteran with two Paralympic Games and two Parapan Am Games to her name, also added a silver medal for Canada at the velodrome. The C4 rider qualified second in the women's C4-5 individual pursuit, to make the gold medal final, where she ultimately finished behind American Samantha Bosco. This is Molnar's second Parapan Am medal in the individual pursuit after a bronze at Guadalajara 2011.
