Earlier in the day Latifat Tijani clinched Silver in the women’s 45kg power lifting event. She entered the competition at 101, while other competitors attempted below 100.
The Nigerian lifter made a bright start, lifting 101 to smash the earlier existing Paralympics record. But that was short-lived as China’s Dandan Hu set a new one of 102. A keen contest ensued between Tijani and Hu. The Chinese won gold and Latifat got Silver in style. Britain’s Zoe win bronze.
