Alison Kabush of Surrey was part of a Canadian team which placed fourth in team competition at the Boccia World Cup in Belfast, Ireland earlier this week.
Teamed with Paul Gauthier of Vancouver and Montreal’s Bruno Garneau, the Canadian group lost 4-3 to Portugal in the bronze medal game in the BC3 category, a game which was decided in the last end.
“This loss not only made us realize our potential but it also made us stronger as a team and as individuals” said Gauthier. “We leave this tournament knowing that we are getting better even if there was no hardware to show for it.”
Individual competition began Tuesday.
