Mikey Brannigan Completes Historic World Para T20 Triple
Brannigan's first race was the 1500m final on Monday, and he pulled through as the heavy favorite winning by more than two full seconds in 3:53.05. But his greatest challenges would lie ahead of him, as next Brannigan would win both his 800m heat on Friday and the final on Saturday in 1:54.24, again with a full second margin of victory. In the 5000m this morning, Brannigan came up just short of a triple gold, as it ended up taking a new Championship Record by Portugal's Cristiano Pereria of 14:29.80 to push Mikey to the silver. Pereria also came in second in the men's 1500m final.
After winning the 1500m Paralympic gold last year, Brannigan hopes to qualify for the U.S. Senior team for the 2020 Olympics.
