Exciting news! Last night Tommy ran the 1500m in 4:18 in a Twilight series official race at Mooney’s Bay track. The qualifying time for a T20 para athlete (Tommy’s para category) to qualify for the Para PanAm games in Toronto this August is 4:20 or faster! 🙂 🙂 It was a very magical moment! Thank you to Alex for being there with Tommy and sharing in this moment!!
There are still some further selection criteria that must be met in order for Tommy to attend the Para PanAm games. We will keep everyone up to date as time goes on and we know more details. For now, all we know is that he has shown that he can run the standard required! Stay tuned 🙂
This photo is just a screen shot from MaryAnn’s video, of Tommy with one lap to go! There is a video…it’s coming… 🙂
