JAMES Turner from Diamond Beach added a second gold medal to his tally with a win in the final of the T36 400 metres at the World Para Athletics Championships in London.

Dalal also achieved the personal best of the season.

On Saturday, Rio 2016 silver medallist Deon Kenzie of Australia came up with a time of 4:06.68 in the men's 1500m T38.

But things did not shine or look up for Dalal last time at the games, as all her three throws were adjudicated as disqualified and she never managed to get off the mark.

The Gurgaon-based para-athlete, who was a national level kabaddi player before a fall from the terrace that affected her motor sensation, has been in fine form through the season after a nightmare outing during the Rio Paralympics previous year, where she was unable to get on the scoreboard after three unsuccessful throws.

Skryne man Paul Keogan cruised through to the T37 400m final at the Para Athletics World Championships by winning his heat with a time of 57.07. But since taking up discus throw in 2014, in two years Dalal has gone from being unranked to the top-10 in the world.

It is the 8th edition of the event, which was formerly known as the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Athletics World Championship prior to 2017, and features 213 medal events. She is supported by Anglian medal hunt.
