World Champion!!!!

RW Gold MedalI’m over the moon with my 200m Gold in the IPC World Championships in Christchurch!

Two hundred metres is a hard distance for me but I took a good look at the other guys in the warm up area and I knew what I had to do.

My start is usually quite slow and I realised they were going to be quick off the blocks so I had to work hard to attack the bend before accelerating into the finish.

I was the underdog in the race and that’s how I like it. The opportunity was there and I really wanted to smash it. There’s such a great atmosphere within the team and everyone has really supported me, it’s been brilliant.
