The athletes at the Paralympics, truly are remarkable, many overcoming many disabilities to compete.

The runners in the men's 15-metre race in Rio, are proving that they are worthy of being Olympiams, as the top four athletes in the race, finished in faster times than the Olympic gold medalist in the same event. 

In men's T13 category, the runners have some visual impairment, and do not need any guidance during the race. Abdellatif Baka of Algeria would win, clocking in three minutes, 48.29 seconds. A result better than Matthew Centrowitz who took gold in the men's 1500-meter at the Rio Games, who finished in three minutes and 50 seconds.
