Paralympian Sam Ingram: Error 'ruined 4 years of my life'


Sam Ingram has said he feels that he has "ruined" four years of his life after what he called an "error" led him to fail to win a gold medal in judo in the Paralympics.

He had earlier commented that he was "absolutely gutted" to go home with a silver after it had been widely predicted he would go home with a gold medal.

Mr Ingram told presenter Justin Webb he regretted taking his coach's advice not to make any big engagements or counteractions at the start of the match - which led to his opponent taking the lead.
