Gold medal
.

British trio Sophie Hahn, Aled Davies and Georgie Hermitage each claimed their second gold medals on the ninth day of the World Para-athletics Championships in London.

Hahn won the T38 100m, emulating her achievement in the 200m, with team-mate Kadeena Cox second.

Hermitage added T37 100m gold to her 400m title and Davies, already the F42 discus champion, claimed shot put gold. Jonathan Broom-Edwards took silver in the T44 high jump.

It takes Britain's total medal tally to 35, surpassing the 31 won in Doha two years ago and closing in on their best modern tally of 38, set in 2011.

Aled Davies set a new world record to win gold in the F42 shot put at the World Para-athletics Championships.

Having already claimed gold in the F42 discus, this is the third time in succession the Welshman has triumphed in both events at the competition.

Davies' first throw was a World Championships record of 16.02 metres and his second a 17.52m world record. Iran's Sajad Mohammadian won silver with a throw of 14.44m, while German Frank Tinnemeier was third.

Davies was born with talipese and hemi-hemilia, which means his right leg is missing bones, muscle and ligaments. The 26-year-old from Bridgend has focused on shot put recently, after discus was dropped for Rio 2016.

But victory in the shot put in London completed his triple double by claiming the discus and shot put titles at three consecutive Worlds.

McKillop clinches double gold in London

Ireland's Michael McKillop completed a middle distance double by winning the T37 1500m final at the World Para-athletics Championships in London.

McKillop, 37, stretched clear to beat Canadian rival Liam Stanley by 10 metres after a race mostly run at a slow pace.

It means the man from Glengormley retains the two titles he won at the 2015 championships in Doha. The T37 classification is for athletes with a mild form of cerebral palsy.

McKillop has not been beaten in a major international event since the 2006 championships.

Right, let's have a look at some of the main headlines from tonight.

Coming up tomorrow

Tomorrow is the final day of the World Para-Athletics Championships.

Sammi Kinghorn has the chance to sign off the championships with a double medal success in the T53 100m (12:45) and T53 800m (18:51).

Also, Mickey Bushell will seek to repeat his London 2012 gold medal triumph in the T53 100m (heats at 10:45, final, if he qualifies, at 12:30).

'It has been phenomenal'

Men's shot put F42 - Britain's Aled Davies breaks the world record and wins gold

BBC Radio 5 live

World record holder and shot put F42 gold medallist Aled Davies has just spoken to BBC Radio 5 live.

He said: "I was happy to say the least. Phenomenal. This crowd got me to a different level and I would thank every single person if I could. What I wanted to do was be at the forefront of the event and the aim is 20m and it is something I think I could do.

"Discus has been on the back-burner since London as it is not in the Paralympic programme so it has been about the shot put and we think we can go further, we were aiming for 18m.

"After the embarrassment of the Commonwealth Games, I knew I had to make a lot of changes and have a coach that believed in me and I believed in him. We are only two years into our programme and he has already put two metres on my shot.

"There is so much I can improve on, this is just a start. It has been phenomenal and I saw an opportunity when I could get a throw in being the main event. I'm glad the crowd did get absorbed and I could show them something they have not seen before."

Great Britain glory

Three gold medals and two silver medals today. Another pretty decent day for Great Britain.

This is the total so far, with one day to go. Incredible.

'I just want to give him a hug'

Men's shot put F42 - Britain's Aled Davies breaks the world record and wins gold

Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson

11-time Paralympic champion on BBC Radio 5 live

Aled Davies is incredible, I first met him when he was a skinny little kid, he has developed so much and put himself through so much, strengthening up.

The emotion on his face, I just want to give him a hug. I have had a yellow card from an official for hugging an athlete before, so we would probably both get yellow cards.

BreakingGold for Aled Davies

Men's shot put F42 - Britain's Aled Davies breaks the world record

The big man is in tears as he waves to the crowd, who respond with a standing ovation as Aled Davies is confirmed as the World Para-athletics Championships gold medallist in the men's shot put F42.

What an incredible start to the competition it was as he set a new championship record of 16.02 metres with his first throw, before destroying the competition with a new world record of 17.52.

That is two golds in London this week for the Welshman, who also grabbed gold in the discus. Awesome, absolutely awesome.

Davies heading for gold

Men's shot put F42 - Britain's Aled Davies breaks the world record

Back to the men's shot put F42 and Aled Davies is still heading for gold, after his world record throw of 17.52m in his second attempt of six.

He has recorded three no throws since then, but still holds a lead of more than three metres, with Britain's 17th gold medal of these Championships, and their third of the evening, set to be confirmed in the next hour.

Gold for Wallace

Men's 200m T44

A result from earlier on, and it was a golden evening for American sprinter Jarryd Wallace, who has taken victory in the 200m after a bronze earlier in the week in the 100m.

It's not all about the British stars here

I had to clamber around a group of starstruck fans as I left the venue last night.

Turned out it was a hoard of Finnish folk hunting down sprint hero Toni Piispanen, who has won T51 100m silver here.

Meet disability coaching's unsung heroes

#GetInspired

Para-athletics has gone from strength to strength in recent years but there's still work to do, especially in the field of coaching.

Statistics show nearly 20% of working-age people in the UK have a disability. But only 6% of sports coaches are disabled and of coaches who have gained a qualification since 2009, the number drops to 2%.

Here are the stories of some of unsung heroes helping to bridge the coaching gap...

'It went well'

Women's 100m T37 - Georgie Hermitage wins gold

BBC Radio 5 live

Some quotes now from the second British gold medallist of tonight.

Georgie Hermitage, who just stormed to victory in the women's 100m T37, has been talking to BBC Radio 5 live.

She says: "I didn't get the best of starts, I was aware of the pressure on my outside, but it went well and I'm happy to get the win.

"Holds (at the start) for me are not great as I jitter, it was not great and that is why I was sluggish at the start but once I got up and going it went well."

Men's shot put F42 - Britain's Aled Davies breaks the world record

Aled Davies has only had three out of six throws in the men's shot put F42. A championship record, followed by a world record, followed by a foul. He has a lead of just under four metres at almost the halfway stage of the final.

It is going to take an incredible turnaround from someone to deny the Brit a second gold medal after he took discus glory earlier this week.

'He knew he had a world record'

Men's shot put F42 - Britain's Aled Davies breaks the world record

Chris Osborne

Aled Davies knew, he knew he had a world record with that throw.

The Welsh beast let a flood of emotion out and a massive roar, it just needed the board to show he's nailed a world record of 17.52m.

World record for Britain's Aled Davies

Men's shot put F42

That hard work is certainly paying off already in the men's shot put for Aled Davies.

His first throw goes to a distance of 16.02 metres, a new World Championships record.

Well, it was a record, before he goes even further minutes later. Look what it means to him as he screams out in delight.

The distance is in, and it is huge. It is a new world record of 17.52m, beating his previous world record of 16.13m. Incredible stuff.

'Blood, sweat and tears'

Men's shot put F42

It has already been a fantastic championships for Welshman Aled Davies with victory in the men's discus F42 and now he goes for double gold as he competes in the discus final - the event he is the reigning Olympic champion in.

Earlier today he posted a picture of himself in the gym, and he hopes all that hard work pays off again tonight.

'Her determination took her through'

Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson

11-time Paralympic champion on BBC Radio 5 live

Georgie Hermitage was so determined, so focused and I have never seen her look like that in any sprint event before. In the last 10 metres that determination took her through.

I think that was a better performance than in the 400m from her.

She looked angry as she crossed the line, she punched the air, that was so, so impressive, she didn't get phased.

She knew she was so strong, 400 is her better event but that is some impressive running. For a team that wanted 30-33 medals, they are surpassing that and much, much more.

The British flags are waving, the crowd are cheering and it is another gold for Georgie Hermitage.

She has to work so, so hard for the victory as she is pushed all the way to the finish line. Hermitage's time is 13.36 a new World Championships record and a second gold after success in the 400m.

More tears of joy?

Women's 100m T37 (20:40 BST)

Paralympic champion Georgie Hermitage is aiming for her second gold of the championships when she goes in the 100m T37.

It was an emotional occasion for the Brit when she won 400m gold earlier in the week and will we see similar scenes again tonight?

Have we chatted about Whizbee yet?

He's the mascot for these championships and, despite Whizbee the Wasp having excellent alliteration, he is of course a bee.

Who would wants a wasp as a mascot? Except maybe a rugby union team based in Coventry.

Ireland's Michael McKillop has been stood in front of us shouting his lungs sore cheering on friend Dion Kenzie of Australia to victory in the T38 1500m.

I'm surprised McKillop had the breath, having won the T37 1500m moments earlier - he had already won 800m gold here and is now a five-time world champion.

Double gold for American Brannigan

Men's 800m T20

It was a brave effort by Steve Morris, but to no avail. He led at the halfway mark, before getting swallowed up by the leaders with the Brit ending in fifth, one place in front of fellow Brit James Hamilton.

As expected, American Michael Brannigan takes the victory to back up the gold he won in the 1500m on Monday. Brannigan has a chance to complete the hat-trick of golds tomorrow when he goes in the 5,000m final at 11:45 BST.

Second time lucky for Morris?

Men's 800m T20 (20:30 BST)

Great Britain have two finalists in the men's 800m T20 with Steve Morris and James Hamilton flying the flag.

Morris narrowly missed out on a medal in the 1500m, coming fourth, while Hamilton came sixth in the same race. American Michael Brannigan is the favourite.

Sophie Hahn is the little pocket rocket, and it was a phenomenal performance.

When you hear her talk and meet her she is the sweetest loveliest 20-year-old, she looks 12, but when you see her on the start line she has the mean stare of any sprinter and she meant business by running 12.44 in a very chilly stadium.

Kadeena Cox was very impressive and it was a great start from Olivia Breen but she just faded.

And let's hear from the two men, who have just been talking to BBC Radio 5 live.

Graeme Ballard says: "I gave it everything, but it was not to be. I just have to go back and train a bit harder, that is all you can do. The atmosphere was amazing, I want to say thank you to the physios and coaches."

Paul Blake adds: "I have just enjoyed myself and I was quicker in the final than in the heat which is good. I am not really built for sprinting and I am gutted to not medal but I was not expected to and I have really enjoyed the experience."

Sophie Hahn says: "I'm so happy to retain my title and break a world record. It has been amazing, I just want to thank the officials, volunteers and National Lottery, without all of them we wouldn't be here."

Kadeena Cox adds: "I didn't expect anything today as I has a really bad night yesterday. It was stay in the bed as much as possible and I have been pushed around in a wheelchair all day as my legs were broken last night. To be here in London is the most amazing experience."

Paul Blake has spent most of his career competing in either 400m, 800m or 1500m races, but today he has a chance for a medal in the 100m after battling through the heats earlier this afternoon.

Blake came fourth in his heat, but took a fastest loser spot to get his shot at a medal.
