Snider played for Canada in the singles match, a 48-minute affair which saw the local player drop the first set 21-18. He re-grouped in the next game (winning 21-16) and then closed things out with a convincing 21-13 score in the final set. Team Canada defeated Peru by a 3-2 decision in the final to take the team gold.
