Zanardi wins again

LONDON – Italy’s Alex Zanardi won his second Paralympic gold of the London Games with victory in the handcycling road race at Brands Hatch today.

The ex-Formula 1 driver, who lost both legs following a crash in 2001, won the H4 handcycling time trial on Wednesday.

And the 45-year-old followed it up with a sprint finish to take the road race ahead of South Africa’s Ernst van Dyk and Belgian Wim Decleir.

Zanardi had both legs amputated following a Cart accident in Germany.

Last year he won the New York marathon at the fourth attempt and also claimed world time- trial silver.
