The British athlete has won two gold medals in Tokyo in the 100m and 800 T34 - bringing her Paralympic gold medal tally now to seven 

Hannah Cockroft or 'Hurricane Hannah' as she is called, shows no signs of relenting.

She powered through the women's 800m T34 finals at the Olympic stadium this morning of 4 September, smashing a Paralympic record of 1:48.99 minute to win gold whilst teammate Kare Adnegan clinched silver to complete a 1-2 victory for Great Britain.

"Relief. In the 800m I've made massive steps forward this year but you never quite believe you can do it again, so to be not quite one second off the world record is gutting (laughs). I'm so happy," the 29-year old said.

"I had a little accident in the warm-up and I didn't know if that would throw my chances but thankfully I managed to get a good strong start. I knew I needed a good start.

"It would have been better if there was no rain but I'm a Yorkshire girl, I'm used to it."

This is Cockroft's second gold medal in Tokyo following her victory in the women's 100m last Sunday 29 August where the athlete also set the track ablaze to break her own world record and defend her Rio title.

With these two Tokyo 2020 medals now hung on her neck, Cockroft has now amassed a total of seven gold medals in her Paralympic career - which includes two gold medals in her Paralympic debut at her home Games London 2012 (100m, 200m T34) and Rio 2016 (100m, 400m, 800m).

"I don't think it will ever sink in. I just need to take a bit of time after Tokyo to reflect. It's been nearly 10 years I've been on this stage. Not many athletes get the privilege of doing this for 10 years or get to stand on the podium that many times," the athlete said about claiming her seventh Paralympic gold.

"It's amazing that we got to be here. I'm so thankful that this went ahead and we got the opportunity to show what we've worked so hard for for five years."
