Thursday, September 9, 2021
TOKYO – A Fremont resident is returning to to the United States this week after placing fifth with his 2020 U.S. Paralympic Cycling Team in Tokyo.
Originally from Ohio, Tom Davis is a combat-wounded veteran who had to have his left leg amputated after his military vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device in Iraq. In 2012, he connected with Turnstone to train with a U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Site to work towards his competition and performance goals.
In 2016, Davis competed at the Rio Paralympics games and placed sixth. He continued to train and competed at the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.
Team USA finished the road cycling competition with seven medals, including three golds. At the Rio games, the team took home three golds and 13 medals.
