Japan’s Erina Yuguchi celebrated her 19th birthday with a world record on the final day of competition at the World Para Athletics Grand Prix in Beijing.
Racing in the 200m, the T61 sprinter stopped the clock at 46.93 seconds to earn her second world record in two days, having raced the 100m a day earlier.
The T61 class for double above-knee amputees was established last year.
The 200m race was won in 26.07sec by China’s T46 sprinter Lu Li – 400m gold at the Rio 2016 Games and the London 2017 World Championships.
The men’s event was won in 22.09 by T46 athlete and long jump world champion Hao Wang.
Meanwhile, China’s world 400m champion Cuiqing Liu completed a hat-trick of wins as she won her main event, in the T11 visually-impaired category, 57.19.
The 27-year-old had already beaten her rival Guohua Zhou in the 100m and 200m – the distances at which Zhou is world champion – and will now be seeking a repeat of her World Championship achievement in 2015 when she claimed three individual gold medals.
China’s reigning 200m T11 world champion Zetan Fan won the men’s T11 400m in 52.63 ahead of Vietnam’s Ngoc Hiep Nguyen, who clocked 57.47.
Multiple world and Paralympic champion Honghuan Zhou finished the weekend with four wins out of four as she took gold in the 800m T53 race in 1:53.66.
Portugal’s world champion Cristiano Pereira added 5,000m to 1,500m gold as he won his T20 race in 14min 56.26sec, while team-mate Luis Goncalves won the men’s T12 400m in 51.37.
Portugal claimed their third gold of the day out in the field thanks to 18-year-old world silver medallist Miguel Monteiro, who was the only competitor to go beyond the 10-metre mark in the shot put F40 event, reaching 10.28m.
Monteiro, who at age 15 was Portugal’s youngest competitor at the Rio Games, sits top of the world rankings ahead of Iraq’s Paralympic, world and Asian Para Games champion Garrah Tnaiash.
In the men’s discus throws, Pakistan’s Haider Ali’s best effort of 49.35m propelled him to the top of the F37 rankings.
In the women’s events, results went to form for world and Paralympic champions Liangmin Zhang and Na Mi.
Zhang took the win in the women’s discus F11 with 36.57m, while in the discus F37, 32-year-old Mi won with 36.93m.
The 2019 World Para Athletics Grand Prix series next heads to Arizona in the United States and Nottwil in Switzerland later this month.
