Incredible; Four Paralympic Runners Break Record Set By Olympic Champion.

Posted : Posted By : Alcapela Z.

Four 1500m runners in the T13 class at the Paralympics all ran faster in their final than the time that won American Matthew Centrowitz the gold medal at the Summer Olympics in Rio last month.

The men weren’t competing in wheelchairs or on artificial blades – the T13 race is exactly the same as the Olympic race, except for the fact that the runners are visually impaired (blind). (The T11, T12 and T13 categories are for runners with that disability. The T11 race is for the most visually impaired, the T13 race is for those with the least.)


Centrowitz went a 3:50.00 in his surprise win, the first gold for an American in the event in 108 years. Here were the finals times for the Paralympians:

Gold – Abdellatif Baka, Algeria, 3:48.29

Silver – Tamiru Demisse, Ethiopia, 3:48.59

Bronze – Henry Kirwa, Kenya, 3:49.59

4th place – Fouad Baka, Algeria, 3:49.84

Baka’s winning time was a T13 world record.
