No big advantage from extra year to prepare, says Tokyo Paralympic hopeful Graham

Fin Graham hopes an extra year to train and improve will only help his chances of representing Great Britain at the Paralympics.
It was announced last week that both the Olympics Games and Paralympic Games in Tokyo would be postponed to 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic, bringing an end to the uncertainty athletes were facing.
A year’s delay could actually work out in Graham’s favour, since at 20 he is one of the youngest paracyclists bidding for a place.
However, despite the extra time to learn and improve, he thinks everyone will be in the same situation.
“I think everyone is in that same position where everyone will have had an extra year of training, and will be a bit stronger,” he insisted.
