An inside look at the 2015 Parapan Am Games 100-Day countdown

If you’ve never seen ‘murderball’ in action before, the forces behind Toronto2015.org just offered a sneak preview of the fun coming this summer


There’s nothing like a nice game of murderball to break up the week – especially if you get to not only watch it being played by the best, but to try it out yourself. In celebration of the final lead up to this summer’s Parpan Am Games competition, the Pan Am Games/Parapan Am Games organization hosted an event that included a demonstration of murderball (a.k.a. wheelchair rugby) at the CBC building in downtown Toronto. The CBC’s Dwight Drummond kicked things off alongside Catherine Lafrance of Téléjournal Ontario (Radio-Canada).
