Welsh competitor Harrison Walsh says he is “unhappy” after retiring from injury on his Paralympic debut.
The 25-year-old former prop master at Ospreys Rugby Academy sustained an ankle injury while preparing for the F64 discus final of the ParalympicsGB Tokyo.
On a social media post, he said: “It breaks my heart that I sustained an ankle injury while training and won’t be competing today.
“I’m still very proud to have made it to the games.”
Walsh started out with athletics after sustaining a devastating knee injury that dashed his hopes for a rugby career.
In Tokyo, the accident struck again, with Walsh adds: “This is the end of a great season and that little bump in the road just kept me motivated!
“I’m already looking at world champions and Commonwealths.”
