Discussion on All Canadian sports
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Tokyo 2020 Paralympic champion Greg Stewart (men’s F46 shot put) comes out of retirement!
  3. Marion Thenault records a new PB of 99.05 to win gold at the Aerials WC in Ruka!
  4. Women’s rugby sevens team finished in 4th at the HSBC World Series Dubai, with highlight wins over United States (15-10 pool play), Ireland (14-12 quarterfinal), and a close battle against IMO the #1 team in the world New Zealand (lost 19-21 in the semifinals). Got demolished by France in pool play and the bronze medal final though. Men’s team an absolute disaster, finished dead last with no wins. Solid showing in our matches against New Zealand (21-26 pool play), and Great Britain though (14-21 9th place semifinals)
  5. Second podium in two events for Alexandria Loutitt as she wins silver in women’s large hill, also at the Lillehammer WC!
  6. Gold for Eliot Grondin in men’s snowboard cross at the Les Deux Alpes WC! Another close battle between him and Alessandro Hammerle (gold at Beijing 2022 compared to silver for Grondin)
  7. Team Gushue wins gold (including a win over Team Edin in the semifinals), and Team Lawes wins bronze at the Karuizawa International!
  8. 19th sport qualified in, as Skylar Park qualifies herself in women’s -57kg taekwondo through the WT Olympic Rankings! From the Taekwondo Canada Paris 2024 qualification document: ”While the WT Qualification System for the 2024 Olympic Games stipulates that quota spots are earned for the respective country, Taekwondo Canada will nominate those athletes that have earned the quota spots by name”
  9. I used to live a short distance from that venue. I visited it several times before the Olympics, but of course couldn't go during the Games. Pisses me off a bit that I'm gone now that I could go.
  10. Mikael Kingsbury (the GOAT) wins bronze in men’s moguls at the WC in Ruka!
  11. Season opener for ski jumping, and Alexandria Loutitt wins bronze in women’s normal hill at the Lillehammer WC!
  12. Silver for Valerie Maltais in women’s mass start at the Stavanger WC!
  13. Double podium again, as Christa Deguchi and Jessica Klimkait win gold and bronze in women’s 57kg at the Japan GS! Really sucks that one of these athletes won’t be at Paris.
  14. Edouard Therriault wins silver at the big air WC in Beijing! (same venue as the 2022 Olympics)
  15. Women’s goalball team qualifies for Paris through the Para Pan American Games!
  16. Women’s goalball team qualifies for the Paralympics with a victory over United States in the gold medal match! So close the first two times, glad to see them get it done here. Men’s goalball team also wins bronze!
  17. Wheelchair rugby team also loses their direct battle for a Paralympic quota (losing to the US again) but will have another chance next year and should qualify there. In terms of individual medals, a further two medals were added with Anthony Bouchard won gold in men’s 100m T52 athletics, and Jagdev Gill won men’s 100m freestyle S10 swimming. Robert Shaw also advanced to the gold medal match in quads tennis. Big day tomorrow, with the quad singles final, men’s wheelchair basketball semifinals, women’s goalball gold medal match (Final Paralympic Qualifier), women’s basketball gold medal match (Paralympic Qualifier), and boccia teams and pairs pool play action.
  18. Men’s goalball team loses in the semifinals, in a direct battle for a Paralympic quota with the USA. Far from the favourite, but still would’ve been nice to qualify especially considering this was their final chance.
  19. Mel Pemble wins silver in women’s C1-5 500m time trial! Alexandre Hayward also wins bronze in men’s C1-5 1000m time trial!
  20. Tyson MacDonald wins silver in men’s 200m individual medley SM14!
