Richard Whitehead has launched a blistering attack on the International Paralympic Committee as he accused them of 'isolating' athletes from Tokyo 2020.
Whitehead wants to be able compete in the T42 100m final in Tokyo after taking silver in the event in Rio and bronze in the World Championships in London on Monday night.
In Rio, the race was open to single and double leg amputees but in Tokyo, the latter group will be excluded from the event as some athletes such as Australian single-amputee Scott Reardon believe it is 'dangerous'.
