Bronze, Canadian record for Dolfo
Braedon Dolfo won the bronze medal, setting a new Canadian record in the process, at the Parapan American Games in Guadalajar, Mexico.
Dolfo, a visually impaired track and field athlete from Langley, completed the T13 100m race in 11.34 seconds, bettering his own Canadian record in the event.
"I'm feeling pretty good, another personal best," he said following the race on Tuesday (Nov. 15).
"It feels great to be back," Dolfo added, referring to his return to racing following hip surgery.
Dolfo, who turns 18 on Nov. 28, attends Langley Secondary and trains with the Langley Mustangs Track and Field Club.
