Reardon claims Gold

Scott Reardon, nephew of former Bulldog Steve Reardon, has upgraded his London silver to a Rio gold in the T42 100m final.

Reardon ran a Paralympic record to win the T42 class – involving athletes who have lost a limb - in 12.26 seconds, finishing ahead of Denmark's Daniel Wagner and Great Britain's Richard Whitehead.

His uncle Steve was pivotal in helping Scott adjust post his accident after he lost his right leg aged 12 in a farm accident when his shoelace became entangled in the driveshaft of a tractor on his way to footy training.

Scott is a huge Doggies fan thanks to his uncle Steve who spent 14 years with the Bulldogs and played 163 games.
