Make mine a double! Ireland's Jason Smyth delivers another sprint gold with superb 100m display

The Derry native picked up another victory in Berlin.

JUST TWO DAYS after storming to a gold medal at the World Para-Athletics European Championships in Berlin, Ireland’s Jason Smyth did it again this evening.

The Derry sprinter smashed the championship record on his way to 100m victory, clocking a time of 10.66.

Racing in lane four, he surged out of the blocks, led from the start and, just as he did on Tuesday night, devastated the rest of the field.

It ensured a sprint double for Smyth, having already tasted success in the 200m competition and he remains undefeated at international level since 2005.

This is his 18th major championship gold and sixth European triumph.
