November 8/19 9:24 am - Ross Wilson Sets World Record for Para C1 Individual Pursuit

Posted by Editoress on 11/8/19

Canada's Ross Wilson has set a new world record for the C1 Men's Individual Pursuit at the integrated Tissot World Cup in Glasgow, Scotland.  Wilson, from Sherwood Park, Alberta, covered 3000 metres in 3:49.450, six-tenths of a second faster than the previous record of 3:50.051, set by Ricardo Ten Argiles of Spain at the world championships earlier this year.

"I was really excited to come to Glasgow to participate in the integrated Tissot World Cup," said Wilson.  "I didn't really know what to expect, coming back to the track after a long block of road training, but the work I've been doing with Richard Wooles and Dean Somerset has paid dividends.  I'll enjoy a couple days of rest and then hopefully build on this new benchmark for the world championships in Milton and the Games in Tokyo."
