Lakatos adds Paralympic medal number eight to his collection
Canada’s Para athletics team is on the board and Brent Lakatos is on the podium again. Lakatos earned his eighth career Paralympic medal, taking silver in the men’s T54 5,000 metres in a time of 10:30.19.
“This one is quite different. It’s my first medal in the T54 category and it’s my first medal in a long distance race. It’s great to get out there and race against those guys. It’s such a competitive field and anyone can win it,” said Lakatos. “It was a great race. I had tons of fun out there. It was really strategic. I got myself in a great spot and gave myself a great chance to win and it almost happened.
