For Great Britain's Davies it was his second world record in as many days as he added to the T42 discus world mark he set yesterday in the Emirate.

The multiple Paralympic, world and European gold medallist this time smashed the 14.71 metres he set in winning World Championship shot put gold in Lyon in 2013 to set a world mark of 15.92m.

Meanwhile, Dutch multiple gold medallist Van Rhijn set a 100m T43 world best time of 12.85sec.

"Opened my season with a new world record!! I am one happy lady," she wrote on Twitter.

Briton Hannah Cockroft secured her third win with victory in the T34 400m to add to her first place finishes in the 200m and 800m from yesterday, while compatriot and double European champion Maria Lyle claimed gold in the T35 100m with a time of 14.92.

Further British golds came in the T38 100m thanks to Sophie Hahn and in the T37 100m from Georgina Hermitage.

Tunisia's imperious world and Paralympic sprint champion Walid Ktila enjoyed another successful day as he won the 400m T34 as he powered round the track in 55.08, ahead of home favourite Mohamed Hammadi of the UAE.

Double European champion Pierre Fairbank of France was in dominant form once again as he took gold in the 400m T53 category in 53.85, two seconds ahead of the rest of the field.

There was to be no repeat success however for Swiss veteran Marcel Hug, who was beaten in the 400m T54 by Tunisia's Yassine Gharbi as he raced home in 48.67, while Gharbi's teammate Hania Aidi secured a dominant victory in the F53-55 with a throw of 17.23 to go alongside her world title.

The African nation monopolised the women's throwing events as world discus champion Raoua Tlili won the F40/41 shot put event.

Elsewhere, Germany's long-jump star Markus Lehm claimed his second victory of the event in Dubai after he won the T35-38/42/44 long-jump competition yesterday, demonstrating his prowess in the 100m T42-44 in a time of 11.52.

The event is due to continue tomorrow.
