New Zealand paralympians have secured more gold medals on day 5 of the Paraolympic Games.
Track sprinter Liam Malone stormed to victory in the 200m final, breaking the Games record of South African Oscar Pistorius in the T44 classification for athletes running with the aid of prosthetics.
In the pool Sophie Pascoe and Cameron Leslie blitzed their opponents in finals.
Pascoe claimed her third gold of these Games while Leslie made it a career hat-trick in his specialist medley event.
Pascoe now becomes New Zealand most successful paralympian. Her latest goal means she passes the late Eve Rimmer, who won eight golds in a variety of track and field events from 1968 to 1980.
Swimmers have won five of New Zealand’s six gold medals in Rio, with the overall tally climbing to 11.
