World Para Athletics Championships 2017

Sammi Kinghorn and Stef Reid both won gold at the World Para Athletics Championships on Saturday. A stunning performance by both women, especially as Sammi not only won the gold medal in the T53 200m, but in a new world record time of 28.61.

Stef Reid won her gold with a jump of 5m 40 in the T44 long jump.

Both athletes warmly acknowledged the work of their coaches, Ian Mirfin MBE for Sammi Kinghorn and Aston Moore for Stef Reid.

Congratulations to Maria Lyle on winning a bronze medal in the T35 200m, and Jo Butterfield MBE for her fourth place in the F51 club throw.
