He’s been making it look so easy to win global medals for so long now that we make the worst of all errors …taking Jason Smyth for granted.

He turned 34 last month so the clock has started ticking more loudly for the fastest man in Paralympic history. He knows someone will catch him eventually in T13 100m and runs a lot slower now than his fastest time of 10:22 seconds from 10 years ago which only Paul Hession’s 10:18 has ever bettered in Irish sprinting.
