This week’s Holiday Hotspot comes from US sprinter Jarryd Wallace, who lines up in the 100m and 200m T44 at the World Para Athletics Championships which start in under two weeks’ time.

Wallace, 27, won 200m T44 gold at Lyon 2013 but was unable to compete at the Doha 2015 World Championships due to injury. He missed out on the medals at Rio 2016 but is back with a vengeance in 2017 after getting married to his partner Lea in October last year.

My Holiday Hotspot – Jarryd Wallace

I would say probably St Lucia on my honeymoon. That was a fun trip. The whole thing was a surprise – my wife Lea found out the morning we were on our way to the airport. It was beautiful, we were there for a week.

My Two Essential items

Does my wife come with me by default? The first thing I would take is my wife for sure and then the second thing is probably a box of nice cigars, a little celebrating in the off season!
