BBC Sport - 'Blade Jumper' Markus Rehm wants shot at Rio Olympics glory

'Blade Jumper' wants shot at Rio glory

Paralympic long jumper Markus Rehm tells BBC Sport about his desire to jump against able-bodied athletes at this year's Rio Olympic Games.

Last year the 27-year-old German, known as 'blade jumper', set a new Paralympic world record of 8.40m, which would have beaten Briton Greg Rutherford's gold medal jump from London 2012.

World Athletics must now decide whether he can compete with his blade without having an unfair advantage.
