SilverFurther to our story on John Wheele from last week. John won a silver medal at Robina in the National Paralympic Triathlon.

John has his right hand and part of his forearm missing and is officially classified by Triathlon Australia as PT4.

The winner was Tony Scoleri, also a PT4 the same as John, who spoke to John after the event and told him that John had pushed him hard.

It was John’s first attempt at National Level Paratriathlon and he has got the attention of the AIS.

Although slightly disappointed at a close second, it has just encouraged John to train harder and work towards the gold medal.

John managed to swim 750 metres, cycle 23km and run 5km in 1 hour and 10 minutes. “I have taken 6 minutes off my time, which I am very happy about.

It just brings me so much closer to my International Rivals” said John. Picture shows John proudly wearing his silver medal.
