With sights on a medal, Hudson’s game plan in the semi-final was to test the competition and execute in order to earn a good lane for the final and he did just that. Running from lane 4 in the third semi-final, he had an even start but took control at the top of the backstretch and on the home curv
e and was controlled in the final meters stopping the clock at 49.53 the fastest time going into the final.
“I am feeling fine. The hour is tomorrow and I will give it my all” Hudson said whose silver medals in the 2011 and 2015 Para Pan American Games and the 2015 IPC World Athletics Championships are historic achievements as he looks to the future.
