Breanna Clark Wins Gold Medal in the T20 400m Dash, Breaking Her Own World Record!

Fitness

In her second Paralympics, Breanna Clark won a gold medal in Tokyo on Tuesday Aug. 31, breaking her own world record in T20 400m, with a time of 55.18. Her previous world record was 55.99, which she achieved during the Arizona Grand Prix in 2018.

The T20 classification is for athletes with intellectual disabilities. Born in 1994, Clark was diagnosed with autism when she was four years old, and began her running career by running track in high school and then in college. Here’s a fun fact: Clark’s mother, Rosalyn, was also a Team USA Olympian! She won a silver medal in 1976 in the 400m and the 4x400m relay — 40 years later, her daughter Breanna won a gold medal at the Rio Games.
