Athletics: Lisa Adams breaks world record to win gold at World Para-Athletics Championships

“She’s been there, done that, she’s amazing in her own field and she’s done the world champion thing, so she knows everything I am feeling,” she told the BBC. 

“It’s amazing to be able to share that and talk about how we’re feeling. I know she’s really proud of me.

“But my biggest inspiration is my son. As a parent, you just want the best for your kids, so I just want my son to be able to follow his dreams.

“At my age now, I’ve created dreams and goals that I want to follow, and I want him to be able to do the same and be able to see that I am working hard and that it is paying off.”

Caitlin Dore finished seventh in the shot put F37, with a best throw of 9.50m in the final round, a new PB and Otago record for the Dunedin-based thrower.

 “I had six consistent, good throws, so pretty stoked with the series. Discus is Tuesday night, and I am raring to go, I’ve really got a feel for it now and am excited.”

Adams and Dore will compete in the discus F38 on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Danielle Aitchison and Anna Grimaldi have both won silver in their respective events. 

A new Oceania record time of 29.86s secured the silver medal for Danielle Aitchison in the 200m T36 final.

Grimaldi claimed her medal in the long jump with best leap of 5.50m
