Paralympics: Hazel Robson just qualifies for 100m final

Hazel Robson from Sunderland ran her season's fastest time to qualify for the 100m T36 final. Robson came fourth in her heat, but ranked seventh overall, meaning she takes one of the "fastest loser" places in the final tonight.

Robson has won medals at each of the last three Paralympic Games, including gold in Sydney, but missed out on a medal in her first event, the 200m, a week ago.

Tanni Grey-Thompson immediately tweeted "well done" to her protege, Jade Jones, who finished 10th in last night's 1500m wheelchair sprint final.

16 year old Jade had bounced back to make it into the 1500m final at her first Paralympics, after missing out on a final place in the 400m and 800m.

Jade, who is from Middlesbrough, is trained by Tanni Grey-Thompson's husband, Ian.
