‘Hurricane Hannah’ Cockroft breaks 400m world record for second part of Rio 2016 hat-trick bid

British wheelchair racer follows up 100m win with second gold and will now focus on 800m title this Friday

Great Britain's Hannah Cockroft completed the second part of her bid for triple gold at Rio 2016, breaking the world record as she won the 400m T34 in dominant style on Wednesday (14 September) evening.

The wheelchair racer had already defended her 100m title from London 2012 at Rio's Olympic Stadium last Saturday (10 September) and will attempt to complete a hat-trick when she races in the 800m on Friday (16 September).

'Hurricane Hannah' left her rivals trailing way back on Wednesday, crossing the line in 58.78 seconds ahead of the USA's Alexa Halko, who took silver in 1:00.79, and fellow Briton Kare Adenegan, who is only 15 but claimed bronze in a personal best of 1:01.67.
