Records tumble from pool to track as Tokyo Paralympics hits day six

France24 says China’s youngest Paralympian broke her own world record in the pool in Tokyo on Monday, a day after Norwegian former refugee Salum Ageze Kashafali ran the fastest Paralympic Games 100 metres in history.

Dubbed the “Flying Fish”, 16-year-old Jiang Yuyan set an S6 50m butterfly world record of 34.56sec in Monday morning’s heats, knocking 0.30sec off the mark she set in winning the 2019 World Championships in London as a 14-year-old.

Jiang, who lost her right arm and right leg after being hit by a truck when she was three, only took up swimming aged eight and will compete for her maiden Paralympics gold in the final later on Monday.
