Still the fastest Paralympian on the planet – unbeaten Jason Smyth’s legacy may never be surpassed

Jason Smyth cemented his reputation as Ireland’s best-ever sprinter after sealing a record-equalling sixth visually-impaired Paralympic gold medal on Sunday morning.

he Derry man ran a time of 10.53 to hold off Algerian Djamil Skander Athmani (10.54) by the slimmest of margins and win a fourth successive T13 100m gold, adding to his 200m medals from the Beijing and London games.

The 34-year-old has never been beaten at the Paralympic Games and, with just three years until Paris 2024, he may fancy a tilt at taking the record outright.
