Paralympian Liam Malone: ‘In three years I’ll run faster than Usain Bolt’

Double Paralympic champion Liam Malone says he will use technology to run faster than Olympic legend Usain Bolt within the next three years.

Double-leg amputee Malone won gold in the T44 200m and 400m at Rio 2016.

Jamaican sprinter Bolt, who will retire this summer as an eight-time Olympic gold medallist, set the 100m world record of 9.58 seconds in 2009.

"I'm aiming for 9.4 seconds," New Zealander Malone, 23, told 5 live.
