Rio 2016 Paralympics: Kadeena Cox and Andy Lewis make history in Rio

Dame Sarah Storey narrowly missed out on adding a 24th Paralympic medal to her record-breaking haul in the C4-5 time trial this afternoon, being pipped to the podium by teammate Kadeena Cox and Chinese pair Zhou Jufang and Ruan Jianping.

Could you believe that she had gone that fast?

The double world champion posted a time of 41.252 to break her own world record, but missed out on a second medal following the factoring of other riders' times with Dutch rider Alyda Norbruis claiming the gold.

Earlier in the men's C1-2-3 1,000m time trial, China's Li Zhangyu set a C1 world record time of 1:06.678 to secure the gold medal.

Andy Lewis won PT2 triathlon gold as the sport made its Paralympic debut at Copacabana beach, while Hannah Cockroft's T34 100m gold was one of four British athletics medals in six minutes at the Olympic Stadium.

I was mentally tired and I wasn't sure I was going to do it.

"I am in a small minority as a black female with a disability", she said.

"Well you know, take out the fact that we're here to try to compete for medals, just the actual time".

"I am so happy, this is what I have worked for", said Li.

With that success, Kadeena is the first Brit for 28 years to win medals in two different sports at the same Games. How about some more R29 goodness, right here?

Storey said: "I'm a pursuiter, I shouldn't be winning the 500m, it should be won by a sprinter".

Britain successfully appealed against the claim that guide Chris Clark had dragged her in the race, contrary to regulations. You can't ask for better than to be beaten by two world records.

"Well the road is where I do 99% of my racing, there isn't a huge amount of racing on the track".

The 26-year-old partially sighted runner beat the T11 100 metres world record previously held by Brazil's Terezinha Guilhermina in Friday morning's semi-final, but then a rival lodged a protest.

There was a lot of negative press heading in to Rio, but how have you found the experience in your seventh Paralympic Games?

"I jumped on my bike as soon as I got off the athletics track, just to get back into bike mode".

"Now I feel the pressure is off".
