New Zealand para-swimmer Tupou Neiufi has won the gold medal in the 100m backstroke S8 category at the Tokyo Paralympics.
The 20-year-old from Auckland led throughout the race to win in a time of 1min 16.84sec.
Ukraine’s Kateryna Denysenko was second, 1.47 seconds back, and America’s Jessica Long took the bronze medal.
Neiufi adds this gold medal to a silver she won in this event at Rio Paralympics in 2016 and also silver at the world champs in London two years ago.
Neiufi will compete again in the S8 50m freestyle on Wednesday at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre.
