Jonathan Fox claimed the third Paralympics medal of his career as he finished second in the men’s 100m backstroke S7 final.

 

The reigning champion touched the wall in 1:10.78, narrowly behind Ukraine’s Yevheniy Bohodayko who won gold after a tight race to turn the tables on his rival from four years ago.

St Stephens' Fox, who will also be going in the 50m, 100m and 400m freestyle S7 events in Rio said:

“I’m disappointed, I’m shocked but it’s racing, you win and you lose. Unfortunately he beat me today. I just felt the last 25m get the better of me

“I will just take it on board and go for my next event.”
