September 14, 2016
The top four para-athletes who participated in the finals of the T13 Men's 1500 m race for the visually impaired proved that they were heroes who were skilled at accomplishing their goals.
The 1500 m race saw Fouad Baka of Algeria finishing the line in three minutes and 49.59 seconds in the 2016 Summer Paralympic Games.
If Baka had participated in the Olympic Games, he would have won a gold medal as the able-bodied athlete who finished first in the Olympic and completed the race in 3 minutes and 50 seconds.
However, Baka had to face a tough competition from his fellow runners and ended up finishing fourth in the race.
