August 17, 2005 — The CCA’s High Performance Director, Kris Westwood, now in Alkmaar in the Netherlands, has informed us that Canada won their first medal at the 2005 IPC European Championhips. Shauna Whyte, competing in the Handcycling C category (HC – C), won a bronze medal today in the road race. No info was available on who was first or second.
The track competition is complete with Canada placing fifth a few times in the men’s tandem and in the CP categories. More results as they’re available.
