The Australian men’s 4x100m amputee relay team of Nigel Parsons, Rodney Nugent, Adrian Lowe and Jason Smart went to the 1988 Seoul Paralympics with an attitude and an ambition to win gold. They had jackets specially made to promote their prowess and they didn’t disappoint, winning the gold medal by 7/100ths of a second ahead of China. With the substitution of Andrew O’Sullivan for Jason Smart, the team also won the 4x400m relay.
