Watch: Stunning Gold And Championship Record For Jason Smyth After Epic 200-Metre Run

Ireland's Jason Smyth stormed to a Gold medal in the 200m final at the World Para-athletics European Championships in Berlin today with a time of 21.44.

The result ensures he maintains his remarkable unbeaten Paralympic career. Smyth set the championship record with a super performance. A bright start ensured he never looked like losing and in the end, he blitzed the opposition to break the record he himself set 13 years ago.

It has been a great day for the Irish participants. Greta Streimikyte also claimed gold in the T13 1500m earlier this afternoon.
