The final half of my film takes me to Burnaby, where I meet Team BC wheelchair racer Tristan Smyth to accompany him on one of his push exercises. Tristan discusses how he got involved in sports and the direction things are heading in.
Special thanks to Tristan Smyth, Arley McNeney, Tara Cleave and The Running Room in Market Crossing.
British Columbia is expanding the availability its adaptive sports programs to give more and more people of all ages and abilities the opportunity to get involved in adaptive sports. The first half of my journey begins at one of Surrey’s free wheelchair basketball and tennis ‘Try it’ days, where seasoned pros of the wheelchair sports world are helping to shape the next generation of B.C.’s young athletes.
