Day 6: Greg Stewart good as gold
Greg Stewart won Canada’s second gold medal of the Paralympic Games on Day 6 of the Para athletics program in Tokyo, taking the crown with a Paralympic record throw of 16.75 metres in the men’s F46 shot put final.
“I can’t even describe it yet. I don’t have the words. It’s been a very cool experience. I think it will really hit me when I talk to my family – my girlfriend, my parents – and get back to the Village and spend some time with the rest of the team,” said Stewart. “I went in thinking – just have fun. Ultimately, that’s what matters. The rest just took care of itself.”
