Canadian shines just three weeks after Paralympic Games


BERLIN (Sportcom) – Just three weeks after his quadruple silver medal performance at the Paralympic Games, Brent Lakatos was back in action on Sunday at the Berlin Marathon. The Canadian wheelchair racing star produced a bronze medal performance clocking one hour and 29 minutes and 54 seconds.

Canada’s flag bearer in the Closing Ceremony at Tokyo 2020, who won this event in 2018, was in a heated battle for third spot with Great Britain’s Johnboy Smith in the final kilometres of the race with the Dorval, Que., racer prevailing by one second.

Marcel Hug of Switzerland successfully defended his title clocking 1:24:03. Daniel Romanchuk of the U.S. was second in 1:24 :47.

There’s not much time to rest for Lakatos as he looks to successfully defend his title at the London Marathon set for this upcoming Sunday.
