  5. Moments of the championships - Georgie Hermitage

    Georgie Hermitage wins women's 100m and 400m T37)

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra commentator Allison Curbishley has just chosen the performances of Georgie Hermitage, gold medallist in the women's 100m and 400m T37 events, as her highlight of the championships.

    "We were not sure what shape she was in and she had terrible problems with injury and illness," said Curbishley.

    "She was lost to the sport, inspired by 2012, came back, and has gone on to win world and Paralympic titles. To retain her world title with her daughter Tilly here was a very special moment."

  7. Moments of the championships - Aled Davies

    Men's shot put F42 - Aled Davies wins gold (on Saturday)

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra commentator Jonathan Overend chooses Aled Davies' victory and new world record in the men's shot put on Saturday as his moment of the championships.

    Overend says: "He is a multiple world champion, but took to the shot put and attacked it with his usual enthusiasm and brute force. His first throw was a championship record, amazing, little did we know what was coming next - him breaking the world record."

    Ed Harry adds: "To come out and it isn't enough just to win a medal, it is about pushing yourself to be the first man over 17 metres, while remaining the first man over 16 metres. The rest are trailing in his wake, but he is pushing it further and further."

    T42-47 4x100m relay

    Not a great day for relay teams.

    The US won the T42-47 4x100m relay about 45 minutes ago, but have just been disqualified for a lane infringement on the final exchange.

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    BBC Radio 5 live presenter JJ Chalmers, who suffered injuries after being blown up by an IED in Afghanistan, has chosen fellow veteran David Henson for his moment of these championships.

    Henson won bronze in the T42 200m.

    "David is a guy wounded in Afghanistan a few months before me," says Chalmers. "Our journeys have been together in rehab and we discovered sport and we both went to the Invictus Games.

    "He went on to become a professional athlete and I went down the broadcasting route.

    "We in the veteran community feel like he won it for us because he's such an ambassador."

  10. Meet disability coaching's unsung heroes


    Para-athletics has gone from strength to strength in recent years but there's still work to do, especially in the field of coaching.

    Statistics from UK Coaching show nearly 20% of working-age people in the UK have a disability. But only 6% of sports coaches are disabled and of coaches who have gained a qualification since 2009, the number drops to 2%.

    Here are the stories of some of unsung heroes helping to bridge the coaching gap...

    Men's 100m T35 - Great Britain's Jordan Howe wins silver

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Britain's Jordan Howe has been on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra discussing his silver medal win in the T35 100m final this morning.

    The 21-year-old Welshman is coached by former Olympic sprinter Christian Malcolm.

    "I knew at 60m I was going well. At the finish line I knew I did well," he said. "Christian didn't give me any tips to celebrate. It was heat of the moment - the great fans and great team. It was a moment I could never forget.

    "Christian doesn't say he's a coach. In his eyes he's a volunteer. He watches from the stands and tells us what we can improve on.

    "I raced here in 2012 when I was 16. Now I knew I had to make a mark. I want to move this classification to a different level. I'm going to Ibiza at the end of the year. I would love to go on Love Island - but I don't think Christian would let me."

    Women's long jump T47 - Polly Maton wins silver

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    GB's Polly Maton won one of three silver medallists for the home nation this morning.

    The 17-year-old showed nerves of steel to jump from fourth to second with her final leap.

    "I tried to be in the moment and really went for it on that final jump. Two years ago in Doha there was no-one watching so to experience such a great crowd was brilliant," she told BBC Radio 5 live sports extra.

    "In 2012 I came to watch the Olympics and Paralympics and came back to watch Grands Prix. To compete in the stadium rather than watching was something I never thought would happen.

    "I'm doing A-levels at the moment. It's quite hard to juggle. I'm doing RS (religious studies), history and geography. I'm very behind but school are understanding."

    Women's 100m and 200m T53 - Great Britain's Sammi Kinghorn wins two golds

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Tanni Grey-Thompson picks the performances of Britain's Sammi Kinghorn, a gold medallist in the women's 100m and 200m T53, as her championships highlight.

    She says: "I have a soft spot for Tatyana McFadden, but I went for a British achievement and Sammi Kinghorn, the way she has matured since she started racing, she looked incredible in the 200m and to put that back-to-back with the 100m was amazing. I think she can win medals in four or five distances."

    Allison Curbishley adds: "Seven years ago was her accident, she is racing against girls that have been in chairs all their lives, she is learning and getting stronger.

    "When she gets more experience, she will learn more about tactics and she is clearly very talented. Get used to hearing the name Sammi Kinghorn. She looks fab and races like a demon."
