Canada Wins Double Bronze At Tokyo Qualifier


Sao Paulo, Brazil (October 3) – Individual competition wrapped up at the 2019 Sao Paulo Boccia America Regional Championships with Alison Levine and Danik Allard each winning bronze, falling just short of earning a coveted direct qualification slot at the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games. More Tokyo qualification slots will be up for grabs in the pairs and team events, which start tomorrow.

Playing in just his second international event, Allard advanced to the medal round by winning the quarterfinal match against teammate Dave Richer. The game finished with Allard stealing the win 9-1, allowing him to advance to the semifinal. After losing the semifinal, Allard stayed composed against Brazilian opponent Lucas De Araújo to take home the bronze medal.
