Great Britain's Aileen McGlynn wins a silver medal in the women's individual 1km time trial, while Australia nab gold.

Great Britain's Paralympic cyclist Aileen McGlynn has won the silver medal in the women's individual 1km time trial after Australia knocked her off the top spot in the final race.

The double defending champion was sitting in the gold-medal position after she and her co-pilot Helen Scott, who sits in front of her visually-impaired teammate, recorded a personal best of 1:09.469.

Felicity Johnson of Australia set a Paralympic record time of 1:08.919 along with co-pilot Stephanie Morton, which was enough to secure the top honour.

Phillipa Gray of New Zealand clinched the bronze medal, while Great Britain's Lora Turnham just missed out on a medal after recording the fourth-fastest time.
