Quebec Swimmer At Paralympic Games Wins Silver

Yet another Paralympic swimmer from Quebec has just won a medal at the Tokyo Paralympic Games.

Quebec City's Nicolas-Guy Turbide won a silver medal in the men's 100-metre backstroke event for the visually impaired. This is Turbide's second Paralympic medal.

Turbide joined fellow Quebec swimmer Aurélie Rivard in the medal count after she won a bronze medal in the women's 50-metre freestyle event on Wednesday.

Turbide is an accomplished swimmer, winning a bronze medal at the Rio Paralympic Games in 2016.

His "breakout performance" in the 2015 Toronto Parapan Am Games earned him six medals.

In an Instagram post before the Games, Turbide wrote "my road to Tokyo has taken me down many paths requiring adaptation, reinvention, and patience [...] I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to represent Canada in the sport I love."
