Saudi Arabia’s Abdulrahman Al-Qurashi exited the men’s 400m T53 event at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games after he failed to qualify from his heat in the Japanese capital’s Olympic Stadium on Sunday morning.

The 23-year-old finished seventh in a time of 1 min 6.26 sec to end his quest for success in the competition.

He will, however, get another shot at glory when he takes part in the men’s 100m T53 category on Wednesday.

Brent Lakatos of Canada, Pichet Krungget of Thailand and Pierre Fairbank of France finished in the top three positions to confirm their spots in the 400m final.
