Vanessa Low

Vanessa Low finished sixth in the T42 long jump at London 2012

World long jump T42 champion Vanessa Low has appealed for the return of her running blades after they were stolen at the Desert Challenge Games.

The 25-year-old German, who is based in Oklahoma, was competing at the IPC Athletics Grand Prix event in Arizona, which she won with a 4.65m jump.

She tweeted: “My running legs got stolen today. Please help me find/replace them!”

Low is scheduled to compete in this summer’s Paralympics in Rio.

She jumped a world record 4.79 metres to claim gold at the 2015 World Championships in Doha.
