Canadian wheelchair sprinter Josh Cassidy has won his fourth Tyne Tunnel 2K race.
The 27-year-old's time is 4.40.2. He won the event in 2008, 2010, and 2011. This is his third victory in a row.
"There's no other race like this in the world. Boston - the marathon - has some really long uphills and really long downhills, but there's no just short, 2K, under a river, sprint like this."
