Britain’s two-time Paralympic champion Hannah Cockroft has seen her seven-year unbeaten record come to an end after coming second to her team-mate Kare Adenegan in a race in Newham, London.

Cockroft had gone more than 300 competitive races without suffering defeat, with the wheelchair racer having secured both her Paralympic titles at London 2012, two European titles and four gold medals at World Championships during the streak.

The 23-year-old had come under pressure from Adenegan in the women’s 400m T34 event at the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Athletics Grand Prix Final in London, but her compatriot was able to triumph over the distance in Newham.

Cockroft offered her congratulations to the 14-year-old Adenegan, who has cerebral palsy and was inspired to take up racing after watching the London 2012 Paralympics.

“I firmly believe that if you put yourself on the start line in a race, you are there because you are ready to race, ready to win,” Cockroft wrote on Facebook.

“I therefore make no excuses, Kare was simply faster than me over 400m on the day.

“Congratulations Kare, I look forward to many more exciting races in the years to come.”

Cockroft and Adenegan are both preparing for the IPC Athletics World Championships in Qatar’s capital city Doha where they will be competing in the T34 100m, 400m and 800m events, with Cockroft aiming to defend her title over the shorter distance.

The pair form part of a 48-strong team for the Championships which includes reigning world champions Aled Davies, Richard Whitehead, Sophie Hahn, Hollie Arnold and Paul Blake, as well as six-time Paralympic gold medal winning wheelchair racer David Weir.

The Championships are due to be held from October 21 to 31 at the Qatar Sports Club, with all 70 hours of action set to be streamed live on the event's website.
