Paralympian Shane Hudson ran cautiously but somewhat assertively  to progress to the final of the T47 400m ‎on Saturday when he hopes that the battle he won today will become  the prized victory in tomorrow’s war.

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.

Sport Manager and Coach, Neville Sinclair, in characteristic style, said: “Shane’s time is now and he knows that he alone can make the call he so deserves”
