Gallant Hudson gets fourth

first_imgJamaica’s Shane Hudson clocked a season’s best 49.07 seconds for fourth in the men’s T45/46/47 400 metres final at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, yesterday. “I gave it my all,” Hudson said after he narrowly missed out on the bronze medal. He added: “This will make me more determined to continue. The time, 49.07, is my season’s best. I look now to London next year, where the International Paralympic Committee Athletics World Championships will be held”. Jamaica Paralympic Association president Christopher Samuda described Hudson’s run as “valiant and inspiring and what we expect from an athlete who is determined to give his best on the day”. Hudson was strongly tipped for a medal after he advanced from Friday’s semi-finals with the fastest time. Yesterday, however, he was outrun by the medallists in a very close finish for the top four spots. Cuba’s Ernesto Blanco, beaten by Hudson in the semi-finals, won gold in a personal best 48.79. Silver went to Brazil’s Petrucio Ferreira dos Santos (personal best 48.87), while Gunther Matsinger of Austria pocketed bronze after clocking a season’s best 48.95. Jamaica, with just three competitors, ended the Games without a medal. The other members of the team are Alphanso Cunningham, who competed in the F53/54 javelin throw and the F53 shot put; and Dana-Gaye Weller, who competed in the women’s F51 club throw.
