Earlier this week, two-time Paralympian Jordan Howe announced his retirement from competitive athletics.

Howe reached Paralympic finals at London 2012 and Rio 2016 in the T35 100m and 200m respectively.

Arguably, the Welshman’s finest achievement came at the London Stadium in London 2017 when he won silver at the World Para Athletics Championships. Going in the T35 100m, Howe ran the fastest time of his career (12.52) to secure his spot on the podium in front of a home crowd.

He was also prolific on a European stage as he won four bronze medals during his career in the sprints.

In a message on social media, Howe said, “Sport is full of highs and lows, and I’ve been through them all, but I can say I achieved everything I wanted in the sport and I hope I can come away from the sport as a role model to all the next generation and all the children around all areas.”

Everyone at UK Athletics wishes Jordan the best for the future.
