Buninyong’s young star Sam Rizzo leaves the World Para-Athletics Junior Championships in Nottwil, Switzerland, with an impressive haul of four medals. 

He added bronze medals in the 1500m and 100m overnight, after capturing silver in the 400m and bronze in the 800m earlier in the competition.

It was a photo finish in the 100m event, with the 17-year-old wheelchair track racer missing out on silver by 0.009 seconds.
