Ocuco backs sprint paralympian as he competes in Rio

Jason Smyth

Practice management and software company Ocuco is sponsoring paralympian Jason Smyth, who will compete in the 100m sprint at the Rio Paralympics tomorrow (9 September).

Competing to defend his title, Mr Smyth has already secured four gold paralympic medals from previous games, and holds three world records.

The Irish runner, who has previously been named the fastest paralympian on the planet, lost his vision at eight years old due to Stargardt disease, an inherited condition which causes severe macular degeneration.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Ocuco sales and marketing director, Alice Austin, said: “Jason is an inspiration to us all and we look forward to welcoming him home with, hopefully, another gold medal.”
