Sophie Pascoe bags Tokyo gold
New Zealand swimmer Sophie Pascoe has won her 10th Paralympic gold medal.
Pascoe has won the women’s S9 100 metres freestyle final at the Tokyo Games.
The Cantabrian made a strong start, touching at the halfway mark more than half a second in front, and held off a late charge from Spain’s Sarai Gascon to win by 0.4 of a second.
Mariana Ribeiro of Brazil took bronze.
Pascoe’s latest gold is her 18th Paralympic medal in total – and third of these Games.
She has already claimed silver in the 100m breastroke and bronze in the 100 metres backstroke in Tokyo.
More to come.
