“I am very proud of our team and our staff. I am proud of the effort of all
17 players on our roster, and I am grateful for all the Canadians that
supported us both in Beijing and back home. It is a tough loss, but we can
look at the big picture and appreciate the process and sacrifices we made
to be in this position to represent our country. At the end of the day, we
played hard and gave it our best, but unfortunately it did not go our way
- Head coach Ken Babey (Calgary, Alta.) on the gold medal game
“It is always difficult to lose in a gold medal game. After everything our
team has been through over the past four years, and especially over the
past two years, we never stopped believing in each other. I could not be
more proud of every player in our locker room, as well as our entire staff,
for the work we have put in to get to this point. It is tough to fall short
of a Paralympic gold medal, but we need to hold our heads high and be proud
of the way we competed and represented Canada.”
- McGregor on the belief amongst his team
“It is an honour to wear the Maple Leaf, and despite not getting gold
today, I cannot say enough good things about this team and the way we have
improved the last four years. We have gone through an incredible journey to
get to this moment, and every single person on our team is so deserving of
this medal. It may not be the medal we hoped for, but we can be very proud
of the fact that we all stepped up to the best of our ability to make
contributions both on and off the ice. I am just so proud of the entire
on winning silver
