The country's ambitious six-member Paralympic team's medal hunt is steadily gaining momentum, with three medals bagged, so far, at the 2015 Toronto Para Pan American Games, currently under way in Toronto, Canada.

The medals include one gold and two silver and have, so far, cemented the dream of one medal per member.

Jamaica's latest and first medal on track came yesterday evening, with Shane Hudson striking silver in the men's T47 Class, with a time of 49.97 seconds.

Hudson's start was less than satisfactory, but he finished strong.

"I misjudged it, but the silver is mine," he commented following his race.

Alphanso Cunningham opened his account on his first day competing in discus F51/52/53/57 Class with gold on Monday. That was then followed by Tanto Campbell's silver on Tuesday night in the men's discus F54/55/56 Class.
