Tommy’s T20 1500m race, Desert Challenge Games, Phoenix Arizona

June 5, 2016
On the road to Rio’s Paralympic Games, Tommy had the amazing opportunity to travel to compete in the T20 1500m race at the Desert Challenge Games in Phoenix Arizona in May 2016. While there, Tommy completed his Paralympic Classification as a T20 athlete, as this event provided him with that opportunity.
Tommy met some amazing T20 runners from the USA, including Mikey Brannigan and Tyler Wigington. Connecting with them, and their coaches and families, was a highlight of the event for us as a family.
Thank you to Kayla, Jason, and Adam at Athletics Canada, who supported Tommy as an athlete selected to Athletics Canada’s Development Team for the Desert Challenge Games. It was a wonderful experience!
