Visually impaired sprinter Jason Smyth achieved fame at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games when he won the 100m and 200m both races in world record times. He fully merits his nickname of “The Fastest Paralympian on Earth”. Jason achieved the Olympic “B” standard time for 100m (10.22 seconds) but fell just short of the “A” standard of 10.18 – this would have made him the first track athlete to compete at both Olympic and Paralympic Games. Jason is now focused on retaining his Paralympic 100m and 200m titles.
