Mangliwan finishes last in men's 100m T52 to wrap up PH team's Paralympics campaign

Wheelchair racer Jerrold Mangliwan could not end his and the Philippine team's campaign at the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics on a high note after finishing last in the men's 100m T52 event on Friday.

The 2016 Rio Paralympian clocked 20.08 seconds to wind up eighth overall.

Bagging the gold was Raymond Martin of the United States while Yuki Oya of Japan and Leonardo de Jesus Perez Juarez of Mexico settled for silver and bronze medals, respectively.

Mangliwan, 41, joined a total of three events including the men's 400m, where he was disqualified in the medal round due to lane infringement, and the 1500m where he ranked sixth overall.

Mangliwan served as the last Filipino para athlete to compete at the Paralympics as taekwondo jin Allain Ganapin had to withdraw after testing positive for COVID-19.

Ganapin was supposed to compete in the men's K44-75kg also today.
