Paralympic champion appeals for the return of stolen running blades

World long jump T42 champion Vanessa Low tweeted that her running blades were stolen at the Desert Challenge Games

World Paralympic long jump champion Vanessa Low has appealed for the return of her running blades after they were stolen at an event this week.

Low was competing at the IPC Athletics Grand Prix event in Arizona, which she won with a 4.65m jump, when her blades were taken. 

She is set to compete in the Paralympics in Rio this August. The 25-year-old took gold in last October's World Championships in Doha setting a new world record (4.79 metres) for her classification.
