It was a second bronze medal of the championships for Laura Sugar in the T44/64 200m.

Sugar bagged a bronze in the 100m on the first day of action and performed magnificently to match that feat in the second sprint event, won once more by the Netherlands Marlene van Gansewinkel.

The Welsh athlete – who recorded a time of 28.03 (+1.1) – said afterwards: “It is a big season’s best and only a tenth off my PB so I am a lot happier than the 100m even though it is the same result. I knew it was tough competition and it got me a good time so I am happy.”

On a highly-competitive evening, Jordan Howe got off to a great start in the men’s T35 100m final but was just beaten to gold in the final metres by Ihor Tsvietov of Ukraine. Howe had pushed his opponent close at last year’s World Championships, settling for silver by 0.14, with the margin this time 0.11 as the Brit clocked 12.88 (-0.2) and with only two in the final, gold was the sole medal on offer.

Rhys Jones was equally well positioned at the halfway stage of the men’s T37 200m final but was overtaken in the final stages as he placed narrowly outside the medals in fourth in 24.88, just 0.06 shy of the podium.

It’s an early start for Aled Sion Davis in the F63 Discus which kicks off at 09.02 and Stephen Morris goes in the T20 800m at 16.55.
