British athletes excelled as four world records fell on the track at the 11th International Paralympic Meeting Kern Pharma in L'Hospitalet near Barcelona.

Teenager Shelby Watson was in superb form, setting global marks in the women’s 100 and 200 metres T33 events.  

The 18-year-old Scot clocked 20.97sec in the 100m and 37.38 over 200m to knock exactly one second off the previous record set by Ireland’s Mary Rice in 2000.

Another Briton, Kadeena Cox, set a 200m T37 world record after finishing in 27.63 to slice an impressive 0.72 seconds off the previous mark set by Frenchwoman Mandy Francois-Elie in 2013.

Fellow T37 sprinter Georgina Hermitage was also in world record-breaking form, finishing the 400m in 61.30 to take a 0.71 seconds off the mark she set on her way to gold at last year’s International Paralympic Committee Athletics World Championships in Qatar’s capital Doha.

Despite the rainy conditions, world and Paralympic long jump F44 champion Markus Rehm of Germany leapt 8.02 metres to claim victory by a margin of 1.31 metres ahead of compatriot Felix Streng.

Frenchman Jean-Baptiste Alaize leapt a national record of 6.61m.
