Denis Lemeunier of France won the men’s T53/T54 category racing wheelchair marathon for the second year running in a time of 1:32:39.  South African Paralympic gold medallist, Ernst van Dyk, came second in a time of 1:41:18 and Eugene Klaasen of the Western Cape was third in a time of  2:37:13.
‘It was hard for me - I had a tough race,’ Lemeunier said. ‘It was very hot - in France it is winter and raining - but I am happy to have won and to keep the winner’s title.’
The hand cycle marathon was won by Rico Mornau of Canada in a time of 1:12:58, with Stuart McCreadie of South Africa in second (1:14:22) and Kenny Herriot of Scotland in third place (1:24:32).
