A two-time Olympic athlete, 35 year old Bo Hedges is one of the Canadian Wheelchair Basketball players in the 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games held in Toronto this summer.

Born in the northern British Columbia community of Fort St. John but living in Wonowon B.C., Bo Hedges earned a gold medal in the London Olympics and a silver from Beijing. This night he and his team mates take on Puerto Rico in the men's quarter finals.

Enjoying front row seats directly behind the Canadian bench, Bo's dedicated cheering section help the entire team cheer the men to their 73 - 34 defeat of Puerto Rico.
