Great Britain's Hannah Cockroft storms into the women's T34 200m final with a Paralympic record time.

Great Britain's wheelchair sprinter Hannah Cockroft has reached the women's T34 200m final in a Paralympic record time.

The 20-year-old, who has named her wheelchair Sally, eased into tonight's final after storming out of the blocks swiftly and leaving her competitors behind.

The Brit kept her composure after the bend and faced no competition from her rivals as she crossed the finish line in a time of 33.20s.

Meanwhile, Cockroft's compatriot Melissa Nicholls also managed to reach the final as a fastest loser after finishing her heat in fourth with a time of 39.41s.
