Wheelchair racer Jerrold Mangliwan posted a personal best record and came in sixth in the men’s 1500-meter T2 of the Tokyo Paralympics Sunday night at the Olympic Stadium.

The 41-year-old veteran timed 3 minutes and 58.24 seconds behind eventual gold medalist Tomoki Sato of Japan, who registered a new Paralympic record of 3:29.13.

Though missing a podium finish, Mangliwan eclipsed his personal best of 4:09.95 and season best of 4:19.47.

United States’ Raymond Martin settled for silver with 3:29.72, while Japan’s Hirokazu Ueyonabaru claimed bronze with 3:44.17.

Other finishers include Austria’s Thomas Geierspichler in fourth (3:44.77), Leonardo Perez Juarez of Mexico in fifth (3:54.82) and United States’ Isaiah Rigo in seventh (3:59.42).

Mangliwan, a 2018 Asian Para Games medalist, has one event left – the men’s 100m T52 scheduled on Sept. 3.
