Day 7: Fourth podium for Lakatos at Tokyo Paralympic Games
Brent Lakatos earned his fourth silver medal of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics Games Thursday, racing to second place in the men’s T53 800-metre final in a time of 1:35.32. The five-time Paralympian is now the proud owner of 11 Paralympic medals overall.
“It’s been a lot of silver and I really wanted to bring home a gold. I really wanted to have our anthem played. I’m sure that, in a couple days, it will feel absolutely great,” said Lakatos. “I’ve got the marathon to focus on, so I’m going to think about that over the next couple of days and just try to come out and do my best in the marathon.”
