Para-Athlete Liam Malone Vows To Run Faster Then Usain Bolt

New Zealand athlete Liam Malone has vowed to beat the fastest man of all time, Usain Bolt's world record time within the next three years.

The double below knee amputee won two golds at the Rio Olympics and finished second behind Jonnie Peacock in the 100m but thinks he can run quicker than Bolt over that distance.

He told BBC Radio 5 live:

"I'm aiming for 9.4 seconds, In the next three years I'll run faster than Usain Bolt over 100m," said Malone, who was born without fibula bones and had his legs amputated below the knee when he was 18 months old.

"It won't be done in the Paralympics, and I've no intention of ever racing Usain Bolt or able-bodied people, it's about racing against their time outside of the rules and regulations that limit technology. That's what I'm focused on at the moment.

Keep your eye out for this confident 23-year-old.
