Result: Libby Clegg through to T12 women's 100m semi-finals

Libby Clegg qualifies for the T12 women's 100m semi-finals in a world record time.

Great Britain's Libby Clegg has qualified for the semi-finals of the T12 women's 100m.

Clegg ran a world record 12.17s in heat three of the competition.

In heat four though, China's Zhu Daqing bettered her by four hundredths of a second.

Sensationally, the world record was broken four a third time in heat five when Chinese athlete Zhou Guohua broke the 12-second barrier, running 11.91s.

Clegg has been drawn in semi-final three this evening, avoiding a race against the Chinese women.

The semi-finals take place at 9.24pm tonight.
