Sophie Hahn continued her dominance at major global championships claiming two gold medals as the 2019 World Para-Athletics Championships concluded in Dubai.
The reigning Commonwealth, Paralympic, World and European champion defended both the T38 100m and 200m world titles she previously won when London hosted the championships in 2017.
The 22 year-old lowered her own world record to first win the T38 100m in 12.38 seconds, before repeating the same to claim re-claim the 200m title in 25.92 seconds – just 0.01 seconds off her record.
“That was absolutely incredible. I have no idea where that world record came from,” Hahn told British Athletics.
“I didn’t think I could run it for 200m so it’s really surprising. It’s been a perfect couple of days.
“I got out hard, I’ve been working a lot on coming off the bend fast. I’m glad the hard work has paid off. To match what I did in London in incredible.”
Elsewhere, fellow Team England athlete Richard Chiassaro claimed bronze in the men’s T54 400m in 47.58.
After suffering a puncture in the T54 1500m final at last year’s Commonwealth Games, having set a games record in the heats, Chiassaro was delighted to finally claim some well-deserved silverware.
“I’m just happy to be here after everything I’ve been through,” said Chiassaro. “To come out with a medal from it is good.
“There are some really fast guys in that race, any one of them could have come out in the medal position, so I’m really pleased with third.
“It just shows I am still medal potential after issues last year. I went from setting European records to pulling out of Europeans with illness. I’m going to relish every minute on that podium.”
Great Britain ended the championships with a total of 29 medals, including three from team England athletes, to place third overall in the medal table behind China and Brazil.
