Cregg gets golden glimpse of 2012
Wednesday 26 January 2011
Libby Cregg added world gold to her Paralympic silver medal as she claimed victory in the T12 100 metres at the IPC Athletics World Championships in Christchurch, New Zealand, yesterday.
Briton Clegg and her guide runner Mikail Huggins clocked a time of 12.73sec to edge out Slovakia's Hanka Kolnikova and secure a gold that she hopes can boost her hopes of a repeat performance at the London Games next year.
"This is going to give me such a lot to build on going into London," said Clegg, who also has a world 200m bronze medal to her name. "I was a bit down at the start but I really held it together. I didn't tense up and I stayed relaxed."
Steff Reid was another Briton to secure a second medal at the Championships as she followed up her long jump bronze with a third-place finish in the T44 200 metres, recording a season's best time of 28.96sec in a race won by Marie-Amélie Le Fur of France.
