O'Hanlon sets Australian Para record

Evan O'Hanlon has become Australia's most decorated male athlete with a disability after he bagged a bronze medal at the World Para Athletics Championships in Dubai.

O'Hanlon secured third place in the 100m (T38) final in a time of 11.05 seconds, taking him to 12 medals in five world championships.

His medal was highly impressive considering the 31-year-old had groin surgery after this year's Commonwealth Games and then battled a hamstring twinge two months ago.

He is now targeting a possible fourth Paralympics in Tokyo next August.

Australia scooped five medals in its most successful day of the championships, with F38 shot putter Cameron Crombie successfully defending his gold medal from the last worlds in London 2017.

Former gridiron player Marty Jackson, who has partial paralysis in his left knee due to dislocating his knee during a game, claimed shot putt bronze in a personal best 15.14m.

Sam Walker, 17, competing at his first senior worlds, was ninth in the shot before switching to the 100m, finishing his fourth in his heat in a new best of 11.69, but missing out on the final.

Australia's other two medallists were Madison de Rozario (silver) in the 1500m (T54) final and long jumper (T64) Sarah Walsh (bronze) with a 5.20m leap.

De Rozario clocked three minutes 34.09 seconds for her second place.

"That was a super cagey race. I think we always knew it was going to be."

Eliza Ault-Connell finished sixth in 3:36.46.

In other results, 18-year-old Ari Gesini, produced a personal best in the 100m (T38) but missed out on a finals berth.

Jake Lappin qualified for the 1500m (T54) final in a race in which American Aaron Pike, Putharet Khongrak (Thailand) and Alexandre Dupont (Canada) collided, with two of the wheelchairs flipping over.

Lappin was sixth in the evening final in 3:03:27 but two hours later was third (48.36) in his 400m (T54) heat to qualify for Tuesday's semi-final.

He will be joined by Sam Carter who won his heat in (48.21).

Sam McIntosh finished third (17.76s) in the 100m (T52) heats, to qualify for Tuesday's final.
