Britain's Dan Pembroke won a gold medal last night and gave himself an early birthday present by adding the world javelin title to his Paralympic crown at the Para Athletics World Championships in Paris.

Dan, set an F13 European record of 70.50m. It's a double celebration as it's Dan's 32nd birthday today πŸ₯³πŸ₯‡

Dan Pembroke. Throwing in just his fourth competition of the year, the reigning Paralympic and European champion lined up in against stiff competition in the F13 javelin, with six of the thirteen in the field holding personal bests in excess of 60m.

Showing no signs of competition rust, however, Pembroke produced a season’s best of 65.97m with his opener to immediately put the rest of the field under pressure in needing to chase.

He went even bigger with his second throw, knowing he’d done so as he turned away arms aloft, with the throw registering as a huge European record of 70.50m. Truly a cut above on the day, Pembroke went out to 66.85m in round three, with his lead established as close to ten metres at the half-way stage of the competition.

Finding 66.27m before opting to pass his fifth attempt, Pembroke finished up with 63.54m, his winning margin come the end of the competition some seven metres.

Coming as something of an early birthday present ahead of turning 32 tomorrow (Sunday 16th), Pembroke spoke on the medal and record, saying:Β
