2 SPECTACULAR RECORDS SET AT THE PARALYMPICS!!
Sep 12, 2016
Let's celebrate together with Abdellatif Baka (Algeria) and Petrucio Ferreira Dos Santos (Brazil) the two historic World Records set this week: Baka competed in the 1500 m, class T13, and stopped the clock at 3'48 "29. The Brazilian athlete competed in the 100m, class T45 / 46/47 and won gold with a time of 10:57 seconds, beating the previous record set of 10.72 with a considerable dividend.
The visually impaired Algerian athlete born in 1994 won the gold medal in the distance event with an even better time than ran by the American Matthew Centrowitz, in the same event, of the Olympics games held in August.
The Centrowitz time was not only beaten only by the gold winner Baka, but also for the first time by all the Paralympic athletes behind him: the Ethiopian Tamiru Demisse (3'48 "49), silver medalist; and the Kenyan Henry Kirwa (3'49 "59), bronze medalist.
Congratulations ! We are honored to support you with our Mondotrack / WS!
