Rio 2016 Paralympic Games

Changing of the guard coming for Canada

Change is on the way for the Canadian men’s wheelchair basketball team following a disappointing 11th place finish in Rio. After making the final in the last four Paralympics, Canada produced an uncharacteristic 1-5 mark, following a 70-51 win over the lowly Algerians on Wednesday.
