Shane Hudson, Jamaica's sole para-athlete to the 2017 World Para Athletics Grand Prix - also known as the Laterias CAIXA Atletics Open Championships - in Sao Paulo, Brazil, mined gold yesterday in the 400m T47, with a season's best of 49.73.

Although elated with his win, Hudson was not pleased with his total execution of the race.

However, he is turning his attention to competing in the 200m event today, and the Super Challenge Race tomorrow, which will see the top eight competitors by times, from all the rated classes, competing for overall honours.

This is the first time that a Jamaican para-athlete is competing in a Grand Prix meet staged by the International Paralympic Committee.

Hudson will use the meet to assess his preparation for the 2017 World Para Athletics Championships in London, this July.
