Parasport Summer Athletes to Watch | Yegor Dementyev I ParaCycling
Updated: Jul 2, 2019
Finally, winter is over (apart from for you lot down-under!) and sunny spring days have given us a glimpse of the summer of sport which lies ahead of us. Here we present athletes who have stayed hot, despite the cold, and that you need to keep an eye on in summer 2017.
YEGOR DEMENTYEV – Road Cycling I ParaCycling
Simply put, he’s the fastest thing on the road. After cleaning up at Rio, with 2 gold medals, Yegor Dementyev is placing all of his focus on the UCI Road World Championships in August.
Pietermaritzburg, South Africa will witness the C5 Time-Trial, where the 30 year old Ukrainian will defend the title he’s held since 2015.
He’ll be facing fierce competition on a route that may not suit him, but you’d be a fool to bet against him.
