Grewe edged the previous high jump T63 world record by four centimeters, jumping 1.90-meters for his first Parapan American title.

USA avenged their Toronto 2015 defeat by beating Canada to win the wheelchair rugby title at Lima 2019ⒸLima 2019

Four years after that painful defeat to Canada in the wheelchair rugby Parapan American final in Toronto, USA took revenge and defeated their North American rivals 58-47 to take the Lima 2019 title.

Chuk Aoki scored 18 tries for the winning side. But it was Canadian Zak Madell who had the most exceptional performance by scoring 27 tries, although it was not enough to power Canada to victory.

Colombia took bronze following a 46-43 victory over Brazil.

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. :Shout:
