Rio 2016 silver medallist Holly Robinson has now become a Paralympic gold medallist tonight in Tokyo in the Women’s Javelin F46. The medal tally for the New Zealand Paralympic Team now sits at 12 medals including 6 gold, 3 silver and 3 bronze.

Robinson took to the field in Tokyo for the first time tonight along with her long time competitor Holly Arnold (Great Britain). She threw consistently throughout the evening and left us all in suspense as she stepped up to take her final throw and threw a gold medal winning 40.99m

The silver medal was won by Noelle Roorda (Netherlands) throwing 39.26 and bronze to Holly Arnold (Great Britain) throwing 39.73.

Robinson’s world record of 45.73m set in 2019 was not challenged tonight in Tokyo.
