“This is a great result for me,” Yemelianov said. “Now we can look ahead for Tokyo.”
The Australian said he had been dealing with a lot of distractions this year so was uncertain how he would perform in the final.
“That was pretty tough but we had really great conditions and I was pushed all the way,” McGrath said.
“The competition is really heating up, it’s two years tomorrow until the Paralympic Games, so it’s exciting. Momentum is building for the Games.
“It’s definitely been difficult. I had a good prep for this competition, thankfully I did enough, just.”
McGrath finished just ahead of the rapidly improving New Zealander, Scott Marlew, with another Ukranian, Mykola Syniuk, third.
