Team USA is finally in Tokyo, and the Olympics are well underway. The Paralympics are scheduled to take place between August 24 and September 5, and we hope you’ll watch, because you’ll get to root on several of the Para-cyclists who competed in Huntsville earlier this year in Cummings Research Park.
The U.S. Paralympics Cycling Open in Huntsville, held April 17-18, was the return to competition for these athletes since the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of these athletes also competed in the U.S. Paralympic Team Trials in Minneapolis on June 19.
For the women’s team, look for Samantha Bosco, Clara Brown, Oksana Masters, and Shawn Morelli, all of whom competed in Huntsville. Alicia Dana and Monica Serada will complete the lineup.
For the men’s team, it’s Tom Davis, Freddie De Los Santos, Will Groulx, Cody Jung, Aaron Keith, Chris Murphy, Ryan Pinney, and Matt Rodriguez. All of the group competed in Huntsville except for Groulx and Murphy.
NBC Universal has said it will air a record 1,200 hours of Paralympic coverage on its networks and streaming services, including NBC primetime broadcasts.
We’ll be cheering for you, Team USA!
