Chris Dugas proudly displays the bronze medal he won in the men's Special Olympics 200-metre sprint at the Canada Summer Games in Sherbrooke, Que. on Friday.
Team Newfoundland and Labrador collected its second medal at the Canada Summer Games Friday when Chris Dugas finished third in the men’s Special Olympics 200-metre A Final.
At the University of Sherbrooke track and field stadium, the Kippens sprinter turned in a time of 26.19 seconds to claim bronze.
It’s the first medal for Team NL since swimmer Owen Daly won silver in the 50m butterfly event on the second day of the Games.
Dugas, 24, will have a chance to medal again at the 2017 Games in Manitoba as the cutoff age for Special Olympics athletes is 30.
