Latvia clinched their second Para athletics gold medal of Rio 2016 thanks to Diana Dadzite who set a new F55 world record on her way to winning the women’s javelin F56.

The 30-year-old, who made her international debut two years ago, saw off a stellar field to win her first Paralympic title with a third round throw of 23.26m – adding 55 centimetres on to Martina Willing’s mark which had stood for an incredible 17 years.

“I feel amazing. That was something really incredible. First I throw so far and make a world record and then I win the gold medal,” said Dadzite.

“Yesterday I was in the last practice and I didn’t feel that I would throw so far but I think my coach, my team, everyone gave me more power and motivation. It was wonderful.”
