LONDON - Valerie GrandMaison ended Canadas lull in gold medals at the Paralympic
Games. Peyton Manning Orange Jersey . The
24-year-old from Fleurimont, Que., won the womens 200-metre individual medley in
a visually impaired class in world-record time. “I was not expecting a world
record,” GrandMaison said. “I did not expect to go that fast. Thats the best
prize, to be surprised at myself.” It was GrandMaisons third medal in London
after taking silver in both the 100 and 50 freestyle. It also ended a dry spell
at the top of the podium for Canada as her gold was the countrys first since
Tuesday. With two days of competition remaining in London, Canada had five gold,
14 silver and eight bronze medals for a total of 27. The Canadian teams stated
objective is a top-eight finish in the gold-medal count. With two days of
competition remaining, Canada was tied for 21st. Day 10 was a multi-medal day
for Canada with a gold, three silver and a bronze. Also in the pool, Amber
Thomas of Drayton Valley, Alta., claimed silver in the S11 400-metre freestyle.
At the track, wheelchair sprinter Brent Lakatos of Dorval, Que., earned his
third silver medal of the Games by finishing second in the 200 metres. Ottawas
Jason Joseph Dunkerly and his guide Joshua Karanja were silver medallists in the
mens 5,000 metres for visually impaired athletes. Virginia McLachlan of Windsor,
Ont., earned bronze in the womens 100 metres in the T35 classification, which is
cerebral palsy. GrandMaison was Canadas most decorated athlete at the 2008
Paralympic in Beijing with three swimming gold and a bronze. She also set two
world records there. A shoulder injury last year threatened to end her career.
So she was relieved to gain another gold in what she saw as her last chance to
get one. GrandMaison races the 100-metre breaststroke Saturday, but feels shes a
long shot for a medal there. GrandMaison eclipsed the previous world record in
the 200 I.M. with a time of two minutes 27.64 seconds. “The pressure is finally
off,” GrandMaison said. “I have had a rough week. I have had highs and lows, but
I have overcome all this. “Tonight I am going to hug my coach, tell him I love
him, see my family, tell them I love them. Im going to cry on the podium.”
Thomas, 18, won her first Paralympic medal after finishing fourth, fifth and
sixth in previous swims in London. In the 400 freestyle for visually impaired
swimmers, the Canadian posted a time of 5:15.48 to finish second behind winner
Daniela Schulte of Germany in 5:14.56. “When I got to the end I was absolutely
drained so I dont know if I could have pushed it any harder,” Thomas said. “I
never felt as nervous for a race as the one tonight.” Wheelchair racer Lakatos
added silver to his growing collection of that colour by finishing second in the
mens 200 metres. The 32-year-old was also a silver medallist in the 400 and 800
metres. Chinas Li Huzhao won the 200 in 25.61 seconds. Lakatos posted the
fastest time of his life in 25.85 as runner-up. “Theres nothing to be unhappy
about as its a huge PB for me,” Lakatos said. “Obviously I didnt win but I gave
it everything I had and the Chinese guy is just a little bit faster than me.”
“Its been a great Games, Ive got three medals and my first three medals, so I
couldnt be happier.” Dunkerly and guide Karanja led the 5,000 metres until they
were caught with just over two laps to go by Chiles Cristian Valenzuela and his
guide Cristopher Guajardo. The Chileans won in 15:26.26 followed by the
Canadians in 15:34.07 “They hung behind us a little pit, then passed us and we
tried to go with them,” Dunkerly said. “Josh was telling me exactly what was
going on and they were just a bit stronger than we were. We were trying to close
the gap, but they had a little more than we did today. “Of course when youre
leading for that long, its tough when it kind of gets taken away from you, but
we had our plan and committed to it and let the chips fall where they do.”
Dunkerly, 35, won a pair of silver medals and a bronze at previous Paralympics
in the 1,500. He and Karanja, a college steeplechase runner, teamed up a year
ago. Dunkerly feels hes made a lot of progress in the 5K since that union. “This
is the first year Ive actually, seriously trained for the 5K, so I think its
what Im going to focus on more in the future,” Dunkerley said. “Josh is an
all-American in the steeplechase so training with someone like Josh, hes pushing
me constantly in every workout we do. It makes you get better.” McLachlans
bronze in the 100 was her second after also finishing third in the 200. Just 19,
McLachlan has set her sights on the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
“Im more than happy with bronze just to have another chance to stand on that
podium,” McLachlan said. “As soon as I get back, Im going to start training for
Rio. I want a different (medal) colour at Rio. I want to hear our anthem at
Rio.” Elsewhere Friday, Canadas wheelchair rugby team edged Sweden 53-52 to

stupid. That was just throwing fuel on the fire,” said Thorpe, one of two black
players on the Champions Tour. “Why would you do that? He knew better.” The
