Tokyo Paralympic Games: triathlon winner Alexis Hanquinquant gives France its third gold medal – archyde


Big favorite of the event, Alexis Hanquinquant became, on Saturday August 28, Paralympic champion in the PTS4 category (for “Paratriathlon standing”, “Standing categories”) of the triathlon. He brings to the French team its third gold medal of the Tokyo Paralympic Games.

Triple world champion (2017, 2018 and 2019), the 35-year-old Norman is the only competitor to record a time under the minute (59 min 58 s) and is almost four minutes ahead of his pursuer, the Japanese Hideki Uda, in this event comprising 750 meters of swimming, 20 kilometers of cycling and 5 kilometers of running.

“The plan went perfectly, relish the triathlete. I had worked out several strategies, but from the start of the swim I thought the best was to attack. “

“When I get out of the water and someone tells me twenty-five seconds apart, I tell myself that it’s really a good day”, tells the one who won gold in his first Games, six years after starting the paratriathlon.

Victim of an industrial accident at the age of 24, Alexis Hanquinquant ended up choosing, three years later, to have his right leg amputated, crushed by a construction machine. Already a high-level athlete before his accident, he was titled French full-contact boxing champion in less than 86 kg.
