Jessica Lewis returned home from the Parapan American Games in Lima, Peru, to a hero’s welcome, after clinching an superb three-medal haul, including two golds.

Lewis capped off a memorable Games by claiming gold in the T53 100 metres final on Wednesday, shattering her previous record time of 17.67sec, set in Toronto four years ago, crossing the line in 17.36.

The Bermudian, who was greeted by family and friends, also won gold in the T53 400 final on Saturday and a silver medal in the women’s T53 800 metres final on Monday.
