Shane Glimmers

Shane’s preparation for the 2015 Para Pan American Games continues to be steady and sure as he sets his sights on the gold medal in the T 46 400m.

In an All Comers meet held last Saturday (May 15) which is part of a series of meets hosted by the Jamaica Administrative Athletics Association in Kingston, Shane comfortably stopped the clock at 50.89 winning the seventh heat of that event.

Running from lane four and against able-bodied athletes, Shane took command of the race from the beginning and measured his competitors and led them home under the watchful eye of Coach Neville Sinclair who was pleased with his first run for the season: “A good run. If he continues on this part, the gold will be his and possibly the world record”

President Samuda was equally confident: “Shane has something to prove. He missed the gold at the 2011 Para Pan American Games in Mexico by celebrating too early and was pipped on the line by a Venezuelan athlete. He missed the final at the 2013 World Athletics Championship in France due to a mishap when he was highly favoured to take the gold. He wants to deliver this time and he can do it’
