Reigning T38 100m Paralympic and World champion Sophie Hahn continued her impressive form this season with victory at the Muller Grand Prix in Birmingham.

The 22-year-old streaked to the finish line in a time of 12.67s ahead of Olivia Breen in 13.28s and Kadeena Cox, who came home third in a season’s best 13.52s.

Hahn already has a world record under her belt this season, shaving 0.01 seconds off her own best at the Loughborough International back in May, and has been reaping the rewards of training under a new coach in Leon Baptiste.

Hahn has been in imperious form in the run up to the World Championships later this year and faces the prospect of collecting a fourth world title in November in her preferred discipline, the T38 100m.

“I’m happy with the time because I only raced on Wednesday. I just want to keep on training hard,” she said.

“It was a little bit windy, but I’m happy with the performance.

“I’m very excited for the World Championships. I know the track well because they have the Dubai Grand Prix there. It’s warm, it’s a fast track and I always like competing there.”

Cox, who is herself a Paralympic gold medallist in the T38 400m, trailed by almost a full second but will take encouragement from a podium finish as she goes in search of retaining her world 400m title.

Meanwhile, Thomas Young took glory in the T35-38 men’s 100m at the Alexander Stadium, cutting the tape at a wind-assisted time of 11.37.

The double European champion, ranked third in the world, came home 0.47 quicker than Rhys Jones in second and Ross Paterson, who set a new personal best with 12.02.
