Paralympics: Nwosu, Omolayo win 2 more gold medals for Nigeria

"Given the obvious sprint power many black athletes are able to generate in track and field events, I know there are many in cycling who feel it would be a natural shift".

Butterworth joined the Great Britain cycling squad two years later and at London 2012, he won three silver medals, but said afterwards that he would trade them all in for a gold.

The last British athlete to manage Cox's wonderful feat was Isabel Barr, who won medals in shooting, javelin, and shot putt at Seoul 1988.

On a night in which Hannah Cockroft retained her T34 100m title by a country mile on the athletics track, Cox was no less dominant.

Ejike began her campaign at the Riocentro Pavillion 2 on Sunday with a successful attempt at 136.0kg, which was a new Paralympic Record (PR) and World Record (WR).

Of Cox, she said: "At first I thought it wouldn't be possible".

"I worked so hard for it and my legs were knackered from yesterday".

This indicates that Google won't price its devices competitively, but at a price that reflects its brand and positioning. As the alleged name of the phones suggests, the event is likely to see a departure from Google's Nexus line of devices .

"When I came across that finish line, I held the tape in the air and wondered whether it was all real". The 25-year-old from Leeds become the first Briton since Isabel Barr (later Newstead) in 1988 to claim medals in two sports at one Paralympics.

"Without a doubt, I shouldn't be winning a 500m, it should be won by a sprinter".

Ukrainian Paralympians are still ranked third in the medal table.

"You can't ask for anything better than to be beaten by two world records", said Storey.

The German duo of Kai-Christian Kruse and Stefan Nimke went even quicker in their kilo effort and Stephen de Vries and Patrick Bos of the Netherlands posted the second fastest time, pushing Ball and MacLean down into third.

"In Sydney I had the opportunity to compete with 11 other wonderful women and share the podium with them", said Stilwell, who was paralyzed at the age of 17 when she was riding piggyback with a friend and fell backward hitting her neck on a stair.

The "hurricane" had promised a reaction to the shock of losing her first race in the T34 category a year ago.
