Friday, November 24th, 2023.- Canada secured the bronze medal in the male's goalball championship at Santiago 2023 by defeating Argentina 6-2. This means that the North Americans retained the third position they had achieved at Toronto 2015 and Lima 2019. Argentina, on the other hand, was unable to step onto the podium, similar to the female's team, which also reached the semi-finals but lost in the bronze medal match (10-0 against Brazil).
