Warrior Wiro: This will not be my last Paralympics

Paralympic debutant Wiro Julin

PETALING JAYA: The disappointment on Wiro Julin’s face said it all.

The 27-year-old had hoped to make a mark in his first Paralympics but he slumped to a 126-136 defeat to Russian Bair Shigaev in the second round of the men’s individual compound event at the Yumenoshima Park Archery Field yesterday.

Strong wind conditions did not help his plight and Wiro was upset.

“I’m sorry that I could not produce my best today in my first Paralympics. I will work on my weaknesses,” said the world No. 21 archer.

“This will not be the last for me... I will train harder for all the next championships, be it big or small.”
