After his 800m race, Peter Trotter talks to Don Worley about his collection of a gold, silver and bronze medal in the individual events at the 1984 summer Paralympics. Trotter won the 5000m by 0.29s from Canada’s Rick Hansen and lost the 1500m to Hansen by 0.03s. Both athletes subsequently competed in the 1500m wheelchair demonstration event at the 1984 Olympics – the first wheelchair event at the Olympics – but finished out of the medals.
