16 September 2016 – Alex Zanardi has claimed his second gold medal of the Rio Paralympics, and fourth gold medal of his career, as Italy won the Hand Cycling Team Relay.
Zanardi, along with team-mates Vittorio Podestà and Luca Mazzone, completed the 22km course in Rio de Janeiro 47 seconds clear of their counterparts from the United States.
Zanardi took gold in the individual Time Trial on Wednesday and added silver in the Road Race on Thursday, 15 years on from the accident at the Lausitzring which led to the amputation of both of his legs.
Zanardi also won two golds and a silver at the preceding Games in London, bringing his career medal tally up to six.
