Cassidy Remains In England

Newcastle, England | by Fred Wallace  

Distance Wheelchair Still Competing

Paralympic wheelchair racer Josh Cassidy remains in England this week concluding a competitive tour that included the Paralympic Games last week in London, England.

Cassidy, a native of Burgoyne, competed in a variety of wheelchair races with his best finish coming in the 800 metres where he was 5th

The former St Mary's Mustang also had a 10th place finish in the 15 hundred metres and was 12th in the Marathon

Cassidy relates he truly enjoyed the experience, but is disappointed that he wasn't at his best due to sickness that drained a measure of his strength.

Between the ailments and the antibiotics he took to battle the sickness, Cassidy had little remaining in the tank, no matter how hard he tried to overcome the lack of strength.

Cassidy compares the Paralympic Games to Christmas, stating he didn't get the present he was seeking, even though he was a " good boy " all year.

In terms of his future, Cassidy states he fully intends to compete in Wheelchair Racing in the 2016 Paralympic Games at Rio de Janeiro.
