Bronze and Gold for Lisa Carrington! 

Lisa Carrington won the Gold Medal in the WK1 200m A Final – and clocked a new Olympic Best time of 39.864sec.

This beats her previous Gold Medal winning Olympic Best time, set at the 2012 London Olympics, of 40.528sec.
She also holds the World Record time of 37.898sec, set in 2014 at the ICF World Champs in Russia. What a legend.

Now she has won the Bronze Medal in the WK1 500m, behind Kozak and Jorgensen, to become the first NZ woman to win two Olympic Medals in a single Olympic Games.
