Tommy will race the Men's T20 5000m on Sunday, July 23 at 11:45 am (London time). This is his strong event, as he is ranked 3rd in the world with his Personal Best time of 15:17. The start list is now out, shown in this screenshot, and at this link: www.paralympic.org/london-2017/schedule/info-live-results/lo2017/eng/at/engat_athletics-results-m...

After an event is over, the Canadian Paralympic Team facebook page also features videos of each session of events.
Tommy also qualified to race in the Men's T20 1500m race which was held Monday. Tommy's personal best time of 4:09 meant that his world ranking was not as strong in this event, and he finished 12th in the race. The opportunity to race the 1500m gave Tommy his first experience of the incredible atmosphere of racing in the Olympic Stadium with crowds cheering in this very first international race on the world stage for Tommy! It was an honour to be there with the fastest T20 1500m runners in the world. His focus this week is on preparing fully to race strong in his upcoming T20 5000m race, which takes place on the very last day of the ten days of events at the World Para Athletic Championships! Tommy has a chance at a medal in this race, and is excited and happy to have this opportunity to proudly represent Canada and hopefully bring home a medal! Thank you to everyone for all the amazing messages of support. Tommy is so very grateful to everyone for this opportunity and is working hard, as he always does, to do his very best!

  3. Hello Tommy and MaryAnn. I absolutely love watching your YouTube videos. They are amazing and make me smile. I am also a massive fan of Disney! I suffer from selective mutism which led to social anxiety disorder and having no friends and I don’t go out much. Watching your videos has made me re-evaluate all of my fears and anxieties because Tommy seems to have a positive outlook on life and is always happy. Thank you for these amazing videos.

    1. Hi Courtney, This is MaryAnn! Thanks for your message. Tommy struggles with a lot of anxiety too. We share his most positive moments, because that is what Tommy feels best sharing with the world. He truly is joyful and loves to share his enthusiasm with everyone. He prefers to keep his more difficult moments private. We hope that others understand how important this is, while enjoying sharing in Tommy’s best golden moments and successes! I hope you find passions and interests that help you overcome the challenges you face. Tommy’s love of Disney, running, his dog Adel, and many other things have all helped him to thrive! Best wishes to you, big hug, MaryAnn
