Canada Protection Plan
Sunderland duo hopes to hit the ground running on The Amazing Race Canada

A Sunderland duo is hoping to bridge the generation gap to win The Amazing Race Canada.

The seventh season of CTV’s summer hit debuts on July 2 and the field includes Gilles Miron and his grandson, Sean.

Gilles – a 65-year-old canoe instructor – counts determination, perseverance and his easy-going nature amongst his strengths, while 20-year-old Sean lists outdoor activities, physical challenges and problem-solving.

“Don’t be fooled by the age gap between Gilles and Sean – these men are both old souls. Gilles is friendly, adventurous, and a very active 65-year-old. He is a canoe instructor, a seven-year meditator, and a bit of a daredevil in his day. Sean’s birth changed his life. Gilles daughter was 16 when she had Sean, and Sean did not have a father in his life so Gilles decided to be a better example for Sean, and to be a good male role model,” reads a bio on the pair provided by CTV.

“Sean is outgoing, fun, and extremely caring. His grandfather’s influence has inspired him to be a better person and he is always willing to help people around him. He holds a second-degree black belt and dabbles in powerlifting. Sean loves outdoor activities, especially camping, canoeing, and snowboarding.”

It notes that both Gilles and Sean are adventurous and always willing to try new things and that they are out to prove to Canada that age is just a number.

The Amazing Race Canada airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on CTV.
