Cockroft wins third gold & Hermitage sets world record

Britain’s Hannah Cockroft won her third gold medal of the World Para-athletics Championships in London on an evening compatriot Georgie Hermitage stormed to victory in a world record time.

Cockroft, 24, won the T34 400m, adding to her 100m and 800m titles, with team-mate Kare Adenegan third.

Hermitage, 28, comfortably retained the T37 400m crown she won two years ago.

Kyron Duke added a silver to GB’s medal tally, while Richard Chiassaro, Stephen Miller and Isaac Towers won bronzes.

That means Britain have won 28 medals, including 13 gold, and are third behind leaders China (18 golds) and the US (15).
