Trinidad and Tobago’s Akeem Stewart broke his own world record, winning gold in the men’s javelin event at the recent London 2017 World Para Athletics Championships.
His achievement follows the gold medal he won at the 2016 Rio Paralympics with a world record of 57.32 meters.
On his second attempt Steward threw the spear at 57.61 to break the world record and finish on top.
Stewart’s gold medal is Trinidad and Tobago ’s second medal at the Championships after Nyoshia Cain snatched bronze in the women’s 100m final.
