New Zealand's blade runner Liam Malone, who won double gold at the recent Paralympics, will sit down with Laura McGoldrick at NZME at 4.15pm to talk about his recent Rio experiences.

Malone returned from Rio with the rest of the Paralympics team this morning after winning gold with Paralympic record-breaking times in the men's 400m T43 (46.20s) and 200m T32 (21.06s) events and also claimed silver in the 100m (11.02s).

He revealed to the Herald this morning he's now set on breaking the national able bodied record and becoming the fastest man in the country over 400m.

"Next for me, in terms of competition, will be nationals [and] break the New Zealand able bodied record which is 46.1," Malone said.


The next few days will allow Malone the chance to explore some business opportunities that have come in the wake of his success in Rio before resuming his university studies next Monday.

But before he hits the books he revealed a desire to follow up on some opportunities to do some stand-up comedy.

"That's something I've always wanted to do," he said. "I've had some people reach out to me to offer some advice and opportunities which are pretty soon, so I'm going to have to really start learning how to write jokes and get on to that within the next couple of days."
