Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, August 29) – Filipino wheelchair racer Jerrold Mangliwan failed to win a medal in the Tokyo Paralympics men's 1,500-meter T52 event on Sunday at the Olympic Stadium.

Mangliwan finished sixth place out of seven racers, clocking a time of three minutes and 58.24 seconds. But it was the 41-year-old’s new personal best time in the event, surpassing his previous record by 11 seconds.

Just like in the 400-meter T52 race on Aug. 27, host nation Japan secured the gold and bronze medals while the United States bagged the silver in the 1,500-meter event with the same set of athletes.

Tomoki Sato raced to another Paralympic record in his gold medal finish with three minutes and 29.13 seconds, while compatriot Hirokazu Ueyonabaru settled for third place with a personal best of three minutes and 44.17 seconds.

American wheelchair racer Raymond Martin notched another runner-up finish with a national record and personal best time of three minutes and 29.72 seconds.

Mangliwan still has another chance to win the coveted Paralympic medal in the men's 100-meter T52 race scheduled on Sept. 3 at 10:07 a.m. Philippine time.
