Record-Smashing Muller Anniversary Games

British para-athletes enjoyed a record-breaking night at the Muller Anniversary Games at the weekend.

Here’s a little look at the victorious athletes and their times:

He’s Paralympic, world and European champ, so it’s perhaps little surprise that Richard Whitehead broke the record in T42 200m. His own record, no less. He smashed through it with an impressive 23.03 run.

Libby Clegg, Commonwealth gold medallist, also smashed a world record. She hit 24.44 in the T11 200m and her team mate Selina Litt came in third with a new PB.



Hannah Cockroft broke the meeting record with  17.61 in the T34 100m, but missed out on adding another world record to the collection.

World champion Sophie Hahn also broke the meeting record in the T38 100m, marginally outside her own world record. Kadeena Cox took second and landed herself a new PB.



In the men’s T54 1500m, Swiss athlete Marcel Hug beat the home team T54 1500m by outstripping Richard Chiassaro and six-time Paralympic champion David Weir.

The Americans took victory in the T44 100m and German Markus Rehm broke the meeting record with an impressive long jump.

Canadian Brent Lakatos, who lives in Loughborough,. set a meet record of 14.31 in the T52 100m and Sophie Kamlish broke the Brit record in second place in the T44 100m, following Dutch runner Marlou van Rhijn.

F51 club throw world champion Jo Butterfield broke the meeting record with a 22.02 effort.

Congratulations to all the athletes, we can’t wait for Rio 2016!
