Cassidy and Dunkerley Go For Gold at Para Pan Am Games

Josh Cassidy and Jason Dunkerley begin their quest for gold today at the Para Pan Am Games in Toronto with both athletes contesting the 5000m. Cassidy kicks things off in the T54 category at 3 pm.

For Jason Dunkerley, he will be looking to improve on his bronze medal performance from four years ago in Guadalajara, Mexico. Dunkerley and guide Joshua Karanja were silver medalists at the London Paralympic Games and certainly come into the games as favourites for a medal. The duo race at 3:20 pm.

You can watch all three compete LIVE on CBC.ca
