After disappointment at the World Championships in Doha when he bowed out of his 400m heat, Chiassaro vowed to bounce back stronger and make himself a medal contender. Fast forward a few months and Chiassaro has been lowering personal bests across the disciplines and appears to be in the form of his career.
A gold and three silver medals were won at this year’s European Championships when he pushed Paralympic legend David Weir all the way in several events. With a lethal sprint, the Harlow athlete is confident in his ability in the closing stages of events, however far the distance.
