Canadian men’s wheelchair basketball team clinches spot in Rio Paralympics

Bo Hedges at the 2012 Paralympic Games.

Bo Hedges and his teammates with the Canadian men’s wheelchair basketball team needed a top two finish at the Parapan Am Games in Toronto to secure themselves a spot at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio. They’ve done just that after a win this morning over Brazil in the semi finals by a score of 70-54.

The victory puts Canada into the gold medal game against the United States which will be played tomorrow at 8 a.m. local time.
