after they crossed the finish line Zou ahead by a whisker raised an arm in victory Amanda McGrory of the United States was third in 1:38:45 The 32-year-old Zou a world champion last year at 5000 meters and 800 meters took bronze in the 400 meters in Rio She also was part of China’s gold medal-winning 4 X 400-meter relay “It was very technical course because it’s so flat I tried to make a couple of moves in the beginning but everyone came together so that wasn’t working” said McFadden who bolted ahead briefly right at the starting gun “I knew athletes were waiting at the end to sprint so I’m proud of myself for pulling the last three miles and taking home a silver” Entering the games with her sights set on seven gold medals in every wheelchair racing event from the 100 meters on up

in the 100 meters her first event In that race McFadden couldn’t completely close the gap after Chinese racer Liu Wenjun got out to an excellent start “It’s been amazing especially to medal in all six events from the 100 to the marathon and it’s been amazing to medal silver in both events because they’re so opposite” McFadden said Of all her events McFadden has performed best in the marathon although this is her first Paralympic medal in the race She finished ninth in the 2012 London Paralympics In 2013 she made history when she was the first person –able-bodied or otherwise –to win all four major marathons Boston New York Chicago and London in a single year She then repeated the feat two times over for a grand total of 12 marathon titles in three years McFadden set Paralympic

football World Cup in Mexicoa few of us nurtured an unusual wish for the upcoming academic session We desperately hoped that when our new class was divided into four groups for the intra-school sports competitionwe would get into Yellow House Because that would mean taking the football field wearing yellowa dream welded in our impressionable teenage minds during that early part of our first televised World Cup For thisthe blame rested on a 63 lanky Brazilian with a full beard on his sunken cheekswhose curly mane bobbed on his nape when he took a quick turn during his sudden surging runs from mid-field He was Socratesbut he looked like Jesus Christ He wasnt the best playernor was his team the best in the tournamentbut he was someone your eyes searched for when Brazil played Rudimentary research made you realise that there was no one like him a doctorsalsa band memberphilosopher and a left-leaning political activist In an era when football was becoming sickeningly professionalhe periodically showed his charmingamateurish side He despised Spartan-style training and could never figure out why coaches objected to his smoking on the team bus For someone who could float like a bee on the field after a night spent drinking like a fishsuch confusion was only too understandable But for many of us in the mid-80sSocrates unwittingly answered the most vital question of our adolescent lives what was cool His two penalty kicksthe first scored against Poland in the pre-quarters and one missed against France in the next gamesaw us recalibrating our mindsets about our behaviour on fieldand even away from it In the Round of 16Brazil had a chance to open their account as they got a first-half penalty Four years backSocrates as captain had failed to take a very talented side past the group stage Now he had a chance to wipe away those memories Redemption opportunities usually come with pressure but it was different for Magrao (the Big Skinny One) He walked to the spot as if he was in his backyardobliging the neighbourhood kid by kicking ball with him He stuck to his trademark two-steps approachbut what made him look regally casual was his split-second stopover in between During that freeze frame momenthe read the goalkeepers mindsaw him moving to his left and slotted the ball to the right corner of the goalpost As the goalkeeper stood shamedSocrates merely turned aroundput his head downraised a finger towards the sky and jogged back to his half He didnt taunt the vanquished goaliedidnt celebrate he was the lone man with a restrained smile in an ecstatic Brazilian huddle That was Socratesthe seeker of inner joy through football Anybody who has ever kicked the ball knows the bliss of a beautiful back-heel touch or the delight of a deceptive dodge Socrates football was merely a pursuit of these pure pleasures He could make a mundane back-pass to his own defender look profound since it would be a one-touch perfect deflection from the back of his boot The goal-scoring mid-fielder had a powerful right-footer but the defenders were not sure when it would be unleashed Many timesthe posturing for a pile driver could actually turn out to be a clever feint For a man who rarely showed expression on fieldSocrates deft passes were his smilesthe short burst of speed his boisterous laugh and scoring a goal the ultimate celebration And the moment the ball touched the nethe would be engulfed with a mysterious urgency to start the game again Maybe he wanted to smile again Frustrated fans once asked his club manager to request the poker-faced star to celebrate goals Reluctantlyonce in a whilehe did Like the goalsthe misses were aloofly received Going back to the 1986 World Cupand the penalty shoot out against France: as expectedthe Brazilians asked Socrates to take the first kick For the ageing starit was just another penalty He did his step-stop-step routine but the French goalkeeper Joel Bats punched it
