Blake bags a braces of medals at Euros

22 August 2014

London 2012 Paralympic Games double medallist Paul Blake added another pair of medals to his impressive haul by bagging a brace at the IPC European Championships in Swansea.

Blake, who is coached by Rob Ellchuk, collected bronze in the T36 100m and followed that up with silver in the T36 400m in 55.35 seconds, where he was beaten into second place by Russia’s world record holder Evgenii Shvetcov.

Blake said: “I’m really happy, especially considering the conditions but it’s the same for all the athletes.

“I just had to concentrate on my own race as my main rival was out in lane eight. He was running blind so I wasn’t sure what he was going to do.”
