Paralympics 100-metre final ‘going to be epic,’ Jerome Singleton says
Single amputee Jerome Singleton studied physics so he could learn how to master the use of his prosthetic leg, having been born without a fibula.
It was never a hindrance to the 26-year-old, who was, at one stage, in the top 100 American college football prospects, and is now among the quickest Paralympic sprinters on the planet.
Silver medallist in the 100 metres four years ago, this time around he will do battle against holder Oscar Pistorius, world record pacesetter Jonnie Peacock of Britain, compatriot Blake Leeper and Arnu Fourie. He expects big things.
