Jeffrey Adams

Jeff Adams returned to the wheelchair racing track earlier this year after almost a two-year break. He won his first race back – the 1,500m at the US National Championships – in June 2008 in a time of 3.08. 

Adams returns to racing after successfully appealing an anti-doping rule violation. In May 2008, the Court of Arbitration for Sport announced that he could return to competition. 

He is a multiple medallist from five Paralympic Games, and is the previous world record holder in the 1,500m and 400m.
