Lewis shines in Switzerland
Jessica Lewis enjoyed a promising display at the ParAthletics WPA Grand Prix in Switzerland with two top-five finishes.
Fittingly, the Bermudian wheelchair racer enjoyed her best performance of the championships on Bermuda Day on Friday, clinching top honours in the women’s T53 Women’s 200 metres race.
Lewis crossed the line in a winning time of 31.54sec, ahead of Kelsey LeFevour, of the United States, in 32.09, with Keiko Konishi, of Japan, completing the podium, finishing in third place in 32.93.
She followed that up by competing in the T53 women’s 800, but could not build on her earlier winning momentum as she had to settle for nine place in a time of 2:03.40.
However, there was an improved for result for Lewis on Saturday as she finished fourth in the T53 women’s 100 race in 18.64. Hamide Dogangun, of Turkey, took the top honours in a winning time of 17.68.
