World Records fall at Swiss Series

On June 24th in Arbon, Switzerland a team of 14 Canadian para-athletes assaulted the record books by setting two World records and four Canadian records. The re-writing of the record books was led by Michelle Stilwell of Nanoose Bay, BC; the T52 classification wheelchair racer established a shocking two new World records. She bettered the 100 metre and 200 metre records she had previously set in 2008 clocking in at 19.52 and 35.82 respectively. Stilwell just narrowly missed the 400 metre world record with a time of 1:08.81. The current record stands from 2005 by Lisa Franks’ time of 1:08.74.
