October 25, 2015

Following her bronze medal showing in yesterday’s [Oct 24] 100m finals, Bermuda’s Jessica Lewis was back on the track today taking part in the 400m semi-finals at the IPC World Championships in Doha, Qatar.

Lewis placed 4th in the heats, crossing the line in a time of 1:04.47, in a time that will not see her advance to the finals. She will continue competing tomorrow, where she will take to the track for the 800m semi-finals.

The 22-year-old athlete competes in four distances — 100m, 200m, 400m and 800m — with the 100m being her strongest race, as demonstrated by yesterday’s medal winning performance, which marked the first time Bermuda has won an IPC World Championship medal.
