Jakarta. Indonesian sprinter Sapto Yogo Purnomo won his second gold medal at this year's Asian Para Games on Tuesday with a record-setting win in the 100 meters for men in the T37 class.
The 20-year-old athlete completed the race in 11.49 seconds, breaking the Asian record of 11.51 seconds set by Liang Yongbin of China at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London.
"I didn't think of anything, [not even] of breaking records. I just ran; the most important thing was to finish first," Sapto told state-run news agency Antara.
Davoudali Ghasemi of Iran won silver with 11.97 seconds, followed by Ali Alnakhli of Saudi Arabia, who took the bronze with 12.01 seconds.
Sapto also finished first in the 200 meters for men in the same class on Monday evening, securing his victory in 23.76 seconds
The T37 class is designated for those with coordination impairment.
He is also set to compete in the 400 meters for men and 4x100-meter universal relay, both in the T37 class, at this year's event.
Indonesia has so far won eight gold medals at this year's event.
