November 12, 2019

Bermuda’s Jessica Lewis has concluded competing in the 2019 World Para Athletics Championships in Dubai.

In her final race of the meet, she took to the track for the T53 Women’s 800m final where he clocked a time of 2:05.38 on her way to finishing 8th.

Following the meet, Ms Lewis said, “I am really proud of how I raced here at my 4th World Championships. To come away with a 4th place finish in my main event the 100m gives me so much confidence going into a Paralympic year and a extra little push for training even harder for Tokyo.”

“To also come away from this competition having qualified in my own right for a 400m final was a big leap forward for me as well.

“Competing in the 800m was a bit tough for me here but I know it’s not my focus event. I’m still proud to be among the top women in the world. To have also set a personal best time in the 100m I know that I put everything I had into my race and gives me hope that I can still get faster.”
