Medallists
GOLD ZHANG Lixin CHN - People's Republic of China
SILVER van WEEGHEL Kenny NED - Netherlands
BRONZE LIU Chengming CHN - People's Republic of China

LONDON, 7 September
Wheelchair racer ZHANG Lixin (CHN) successfully defended his Beijing
2008 T54 men's 400m title in 46.88m, and although he was nearly two
seconds slower than his Paralympic record of four years ago, the best of
the rest of the world were still left trailing in his wake.

I was pleased with my performance and results. I thank the spectators
and crowds for the inspiration. The training was really difficult and
hard but it's totally worth it when I won this medal. - ZHANG Lixin said

Doing your FIRST ULTRA MARATHON | Wheelchair racing challenge | COMRADES MARATHON | Alwyn Uys

Doing your FIRST ULTRA MARATHON | Wheelchair racing challenge | COMRADES MARATHON | Alwyn Uys

Doing your first ultra-marathon race can be challenging but in this video, I share my experience of doing my first ultra-marathon in a wheelchair and taking on the wheelchair racing challenge. How to do an ultra marathon, your first ultra-marathon is explained and shown in this video. This is my first ultra-marathon.

Wheelchair racing is very different to marathon running but can be directly compared as well. I this video I explain exactly what I mean by that and how ultra running marathon and wheelchair racing can be compared but also what is the difference between running an ultra marathon and wheelchair racing is exactly.

The Comrades Marathon is one of the world's well-known ultra-marathons in the running, road running sports. It is an ultra-marathon running from Duban to Pietermaritzburg, or vice-versa depending because they swop out the route each year, respectively. Comrades Marathon is a very challenging ultra-marathon especially for wheelchair racers like myself. The hills are tough and the downhills are fast.

This was my first ultra-marathon but we loved the process of training for an ultra-marathon and enjoying the day with friends and family.
