​Henshaw Goes For Gold in Rio

15th September 2016

Henshaw Goes For Gold in Rio

Mansfield swimmer Charlotte Henshaw was second fastest in qualifying for the final of the women's 100m breaststroke at the Paralympic Games in Brazil.

She broke the games record in the first heat to finish in 1min 38.11secs but Australian Tiffany Thomas Kane  was then almost three seconds faster in heat two.

The final takes place at 9:50pm on Thursday night UK time.

Henshaw won silver in the same event at London 2012 so will be hoping to go one better to win her first Paralympic gold.

Kirkby's Oliver Hynd, meanwhile, was part of a 4x100m Freestyle Relay team that finished fourth in Rio in the early hours of Thursday morning.

It means his medal haul at the games is one gold and one silver with the 200m Individual Medley his final race on Sunday.
