World Para Athletics Championships



The match for third was going on inside - Crosby pipped Gliebova by two tenths for the bronze

Peacock goes in his final within the hour - hopefully there's some decent action between now and then

Womens T35 200m action too

We've a British runner here - Maria Lyle in two...three Aussies as well

From outside inwards: Salmon (Aus), Zhou (China), Coop (Aussie), Kibil (Poland), Luxova (Czechia), Holt (Oz), Lyle (GB),


Isis Holt wins it for Australia - 28.48! Zhou second - Lyle gets bronze for GB. Same three as the Paralympics, different order mind

Must not mock the winners' name...she runs a superb bend, really slowed at the end but had enough of a buffer over Zhou. The front three were running their own race really. Others were out the back of the TV

As ever with TV coverage of athletics...the field stuff is pretty much ignored. Here's an update from the mens t12 long jump though. 6.99 from Jonsson of Sweden guarantees him a medal as we get to the end. Here's Saliev of Uzbekistan, in the lead, and has 7.18! In fact that wraps up gold Burdikou of Belarus has bronze (6.77)

Some more action now - a wheelchair race on the track. 1500m T52 for the men. T52 is for limited upper body function
