On his Games debut, David won his first bronze medal in the T13 1500m and, classified as a T12 athlete, he set a personal best and European record time of 3:49.79 in the process. The next night, he was back on the track to compete in the T12 800m and produced a strong sprint finish to secure a second bronze medal.
