Hayes’ long jump to IPC gold medal in France
- Updated: July 25, 2013
Team South Africa upped their medal tally to 13 on day six of the IPC Athletics World Championships in Lyon, France on Thursday, writes Mark Etheridge.
One gold, two silver and a bronze medal clattered into the team’s medal chest bringing the total to date to 13.
Stellenbosch’s double Paralympian Ilse Hayes was the main star of the day as she launched herself 5.76 metres to the gold medal in the long jump competition (T13). A bonus for her was the fact that her winning leap was a championship record.
There were silvers for Anrun├® Liebenberg and Jonathan Ntutu and a bronze medal for Zanele Situ.
Liebenberg ran 26.06 seconds for her silver in the T46 200m final and Ntutu was also runner-up in the T13 100m final.
The bronze medal went to veteran Paralympian campaigner Situ whose 17.54 in the F54 javelin final represented a personal best.
