Olivia Bren finishes fifth in her first Paralympics in the T38 100m final.

Great Britain's 16-year-old Olivia Breen has finished in a credible fifth position in the T38 100m in her first Paralympics.

The young athlete did not get off to the best start, but worked her way through the field to finish not far off the medal places.

The race for the medals was incredibly close, with China's Chen Junfei leading for much of it, only to be pipped into silver with her 13.53.

The winner Margarita Goncharova of Russian Federation left it late, but powered through the finish to claim gold with 13.45.

Inna Stryzhak of Ukraine ran a season's best of 13.64 to claim bronze.
