Top Highlights From Track And Field
Breaking records – Cinnamo and Grewe broke world records on the second day of track and field competition at the 2019 Parapan American Games.

Grewe edged the previous high jump T63 world record by four centimeters, jumping 1.90-meters for his first Parapan American title.
Parapan games are over. I'm a little surprised Brazil had soo many medals. But, Hats off to all those, especially from US, that were able to participate and medal even with their disabilities. I think it's great they have this chance to make more of their lives than just accepting they can't do what others can or what they were able to do before their injury or at all if they were born that way.
