UK Para World Champion Shares High Jump Gold Medal


Britain's Jonathan Broom-Edwards and Polish rival Maciej Lepiato have shared high jump gold at the Para Athletics World Championships in Paris.


The pair, who had first-time clearances all the way up to 2.05m, both failed to clear 2.07m in the T64 final for athletes with lower limb impairments.


Officials gave the pair the option of a jump-off, but they instead opted to share the title.


The Para Athletic World Championships is the biggest Para-sport competition since the 2021 Tokyo Paralympics. Featuring 1,330 athletes from 107 countries the event runs until July 17 and will be a key marker for form before next year's Paris Games.


All the action is being streamed live on the World Para Athletics Facebook Page and Paralympics YouTube channel. To find out more https://www.britishathletics.org.uk or https://www.paralympic.org/athletics/paris-2023
