Jason Smyth targeting Gold at Paralympic Games

Jason Smyth

Derry's Jason Smyth begins his quest for a third 100-metre gold medal, when he goes in the T-13 heats at around 11.20 tonight, Irish time.

Smyth was a double gold winner in London four years ago in the 100 and 200 metres but this time around he will only be able to target one medal.

Speaking with Oisin Langan, the Eglinton man is pleased with his form going into the games...

Elsewhere on day one, Galway based Buncrana women Rena McCarron Rooney is in table tennis qualifier action.
