MEDAL QUEST | MEDAL QUEST AT THE GAMES | Racing for the 100m Gold | PBS

Duration: 03:55

The most high-profile race in the Paralympics is the Men's 100m sprint (T44), headlined by South Africa's Oscar Pistorius, called "the fastest man on no legs." The 2012 race challengers included the world record holder, Jonnie Peacock of Great Britain, plus a trio of fast Americans: Blake Leeper, Jerome Singleton, and Richard Browne. MEDAL QUEST offers an unprecedented look into these high-stake games and the athletes that play them, and is produced for PBS by WGBH Boston in association with the US Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee.
