University of Bath-based Paralympic champion Paul Blake has started his 2017 campaign in fine style by winning two golds and a silver at the Dubai 2017 World Para Athletics Grand Prix.

Blake ran his fastest 200m time since 2012 as he clocked 25.73 on the newly-laid track in Dubai to claim his first victory of the week.

He was back in action in the 400m, the distance he won gold in at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

He produced another strong showing to take silver in the final behind Algeria’s Sofiane Hamdi in 56.19.

A busy week concluded on Wednesday as Blake won gold in the 100m final, clocking 12.56 to finish ahead of fellow Brit Jordan Howe.
