Hannah Cockroft secured her seventh Paralympic gold medal with a dominant win in the T34 800m, the first of three British titles on day 11 in Tokyo.
Cockroft set a new Paralympic record as British team-mate Kare Adenegan took silver, almost 11 seconds behind.In another British one-two, Charlotte Henshaw won KL2 200m Para-canoe gold, with Emma Wiggs clinching silver.
Another gold soon followed in Para-canoe, with Laura Sugar becoming KL3 champion.

Stuart Wood, making his Paralympic debut in Tokyo, won bronze in a tight finish in the VL3 200m final.
Elsewhere, Zak Skinner missed out on a medal in the T13 long jump by an agonising two centimetres, knocked out of bronze position on the final jump by American Isaac Jean-Paul.

Dan Bethell is guaranteed at least a silver medal on Para-badminton's Paralympic debut, reaching the men's SL3 singles final, which is at 10:30 BST on Saturday.
Jordanne Whiley and Lucy Shuker were left with silver in the wheelchair tennis women's doubles after they were beaten 6-0 6-1 by Dutch top seeds Diede de Groot and Aniek van Koot in the final.
It is Whiley's second medal of the Games after she defeated Van Koot for singles bronze on Friday.

Look, Celeste is ploughing a lonely furrow with this Paralympics theme, and we cannot help but admire her determination. Canít somebody join in and help her out? Iíd do it myself, but I donít know the first thing about the Paralympics. Or the Olympics, for that matter.
