Paralympic and world champion Breanna Clark smashed her own world record in the women's 400 metres T20 on the second and final day of competition at the Arizona World Para Athletics Grand Prix in the United States.

Clark took an impressive 0.34 seconds off the mark she set at last year’s World Championships as she crossed the line in 55.99sec at the Joe Selleh Track.

"It was tiring but I went through it just like I practiced," said the 23-year-old, who is coached by her mother Rosalyn, a silver medallist for the United States in the 4x400m at the 1976 Montreal Olympics under her maiden name of Bryant.

"I crossed the finish without slowing up.

"Breaking the world record takes hard work - I hope to break more records by next year and 2020."

The Arizona Grand Prix doubled as the US Nationals this year and many of the top American Para-athletes were in action.

Reigning world champion Jarryd Wallace added to his victory over 100m on the opening day with a straightforward win in the 200m T64.

The 28-year-old clocked 22.11, finishing more than a second clear of his rivals.

Six-time Paralympic gold medallist Ray Martin earned his second win of the competition with a convincing victory in the men's 400m T52 in 57.51sec, although he had to make do with second place in the 1,500m T52 behind fellow countryman Nicholas McCoy, who clocked 3:41.81.

Out in the field, three-time world champion Lex Gillette continued his winning ways in the men's long jump T11.

The 34-year-old has won the event since the first Grand Prix back in 2013, and this time 6.20m proved good enough to take gold.

Paralympic champion David Blair won the men's discus F44 with a best of 62.92m and three-time world champion Jeremy Campbell took gold in the F64 class with 62.51m.
