Kadeena Cox stormed to victory in the women’s T38 400 metres at the World Para Athletics Championships in London.
The 26-year-old, the T38 400m Paralympic champion, won gold in one minute and 2.87 seconds - just under six seconds ahead of Japan’s Yuka Takamatsu.
She will look to add another title on Saturday at the London Stadium when she races in the T38 100m, against team-mate Sophie Hahn, having already won bronze in the T38 200m.
Cox, who has multiple sclerosis, may have won persuasively, but she stressed it was not as easy as it looked.
“No, most definitely not,” she told Channel 4.
“I had 100 to go and I was like, ‘Oh gosh, the time’s ticking and I’m not moving’.
“I’m struggling a little bit. I’ve been managing an injury. A lack of training and MS, it all adds up and I’ve got a few niggles I’m dealing with.
“But I’m in one piece thanks to the team, all provided by the National Lottery, so a massive thanks to them because I’m still here and I’ve got a medal.”
