MANILA – Jerrold Mangliwan’s impressive appearance in the final of the 400 meter wheelchair race of the Tokyo Paralympics went down the drain when the officials canceled his performance due to a disqualification.
Although Mangliwan missed the podium, he appeared having set a new personal best with one minute and eight tenths of a second.
Tomoki Sato from Japan set a new Paralympic record after winning the race with 55.39 seconds, a quarter of a second less than the world record he set 2018.
Raymond Martin, the 2016 Paralympics champion in Rio De Janeiro, won silver with 55.59 seconds, his best time for 2021.
Hirokazu Ueyonabaru sealed Japan’s 1-3 placement, after taking bronze in just under a minute.
