Hudson claims silver at Paralympic Championships

JAMAICA'S Shane Hudson captured a silver medal in the Men's T 47 400 m at the International Paralympic Committee's Athletics World Championships now under way in Doha.

Hudson ran a personal best 48.89 to finish in second and win Jamaica's first medal in an ambulant event at the Championships.

"Jamaica has silver from me," said Hudson after his feast.

Hudson also claimed silver at the 2011 Guadalajara Athletics World Championships and at the 2015 Toronto Para Pan American Games.

Coach Sinclair was evidently pleased but was also prospective; "Shane deserves every inch of that silver with his PR but we'll be working for the gold in Rio which is in his grasp."
