One Paralympic medal is hard to get. Two is even harder.
Twenty? That's almost unheard of...unless you know Benoit Huot. He completed the rare feat Thursday in Rio when he won bronze in the men's 400-metre freestyle S10.
After standing on the podium for the 20th time, the 32-year-old from Longueuil, Que., celebrated his big moment with family.
While many friends and fellow athletes couldn't be there in person, they were quick to show their support for Huot on social media.
(I couldn't hold back my tears, seeing your face after your race! Bravo my friend @benhuot #Paralympics #bronze #proud)
YES!!!!!!!! BRONZE FOR @benhuot— @The_Real_DENG
Congrats my friend!!!!!
Even Curt Harnett, Canada's Rio 2016 Olympic chef de mission, shared his eloquent words of congratulations:
