Sophie Hahn lit up the London Stadium to win the T38 100m, at the World Para-Athletics Championships in London.
In a star-studded field that contained no fewer three British athletes, Hahn triumphed ahead of teammate Kadeena Cox in second, to win in 12.44, an improvement on her own world record. GB’s Olivia Breen, finished fourth.
One week ago, Hahn won gold in the T38 200m final.
Speaking afterwards Hahn said: “When I crossed the line today I glanced across at the clock and when I saw 12.4 I thought it was pretty amazing. It’s incredible here, it’s a great stadium and a fast track and it really helps you.”
Georgie Hermitage and Aled Davies also won their second gold medals.
Hermitage added the T37 100m gold medal to her 400m title, while Davies, added shot put gold to her F42 discus gold.
