Nurkhon Kurbanova broke the women's javelin T54 world record three times as Uzbekistan won three golds in the field. Britain's Hannah Cockroft won the women's 800m T34 for her second gold in Kobe and her 16th world title in total.

Kurbanova needed just one attempt to break Nigerian Flora Ugwunwa's previous best of 20.25m, doing so by 11 centimetres. She then improved to 20.63m in round two before producing a final round throw of 20.73m. Ugwunwa took silver with 19.33m ahead of Iran's Elham Salehi.

Earlier, Safiya Burkhanova had taken gold in the women's shot put F12 with 13.05m ahead of Chinese pair Zhao Yuping and Xue Enhui. In the evening session, Xue won the discus throw F11 just before Asila Mirzayovova made it three golds for Uzbekistan. She won the women's long jump T11 final with Brazil’s Lorena Silva Spoladore, who took 100m T11 bronze on Tuesday to maintain her record of winning a medal at every World Championship since 2013, in second.

Having won the 100m on Monday, Hannah Cockroft dominated the 800m T34 to claim her 16th world title in total. The 31-year-old British wheelchair racer crossed the line well clear of her rivals in a championship record 1:52.79. China’s Lan Hanyu took the silver in a new Asian record of 2:04.99 ahead of team-mate Liu Panpan.

Cockroft went on to help Britain to silver in the universal relay. She said afterwards, "Sixteen world titles is like one world title for every year I have been racing so I am very happy. Two races within 50 minutes of each other was a big ask. I was testing it here to see if I could actually handle it."

"To finish on a night like this has been amazing. To do what I did in the 800m, and then come back and get a silver in the relay is what I hoped for, but I don’t know if I believed I could do it."

Mexico’s Edgar Ulises Fuentes Yanez set a new championship record in the men’s javelin throw F54, breaking the old record three times in his six attempts. His final toss was the first in World Championship history beyond 30 metres, with a final distance of 30.25m. Rio 2016 Paralympic gold medallist took silver with 29.91m.

Finland's four-time Paralympic champion Leo-Pekka Tahti won his men’s 100m T54 world title in a season's best 13.78. China’s Hu Yang and Mexico’s Juan Pablo Cervantes Garcia both set season-best times for silver and bronze, respectively.

Defending Paralympic champion Michael Brannigan of the United States went one better than his silver from Paris last year in the men’s 1500m T20. He clocked 3:51.71 to beat his own championship record from London 2017 by over a second with Portugal’s Sandro Baessa edging out Japan’s Togawa Yuji for silver.

"I feel excited and happy,” Brannigan said. “I felt good and stayed in control, ran my own race, and I executed. I feel really proud of myself, and I believe I can do it in Paris."

Ecuador’s Kiara Rodriguez retained her women’s long jump T47 title with a season's best 6.17m ahead of New Zealand’s Anna Grimaldi and Petra Luteran of Hungary.

Belgium’s Maxime Carabin won his second gold medal in Kobe in the men’s 100m T52. Having broken the championship record in the heats, he was slower in the final but his 16.79 was still good enough for victory. Mexico’s Salvador Hernandez Mondragon took silver with Tomoki Sato rounding out the podium.

Carabin's compatriot Roger Habsch took gold in the men’s 100m T51 in 20.82 ahead of Canada’s Cody Fournie and Edgar Cesareo Navarro Sanchez of Mexico.

Iran's Yashin Khosravi dominated the men’s shot put F57. His first throw would have been enough for the win but the reigning champion and world record holder pushed his mark to 15.83m, a season's best. Brazil’s Thiago Paulino dos Santos was second.

Neutral athlete Aleksandr Iaremchuk, the defending 1500m T46 Paralympic champion, won his first gold in Kobe in 3:48.87. That was two seconds inside the previous championship record held by Bulgaria’s Hristiyan Stoyanov who took second in a new European record. Australia's Michael Roeger set a new Oceania record for the bronze.

Another neutral athlete, Artem Kalashian, won the men’s 100m T35 in 11.71. Colombia’s Jose Gregorio Lemos Rivas retained his world title in the men’s shot put F38 with a season's best 17.10m.

The universal 4x100m relay brought the day’s events to a close. China took gold in a championship record 45.54, eight-tenths inside their mark from Dubai 2019, with Great Britain second in 47.50. Japan were initially given the bronze, but a lane violation saw them disqualified with Indonesia taking the final spot on the podium.

With one day of competition remaining, China lead the medal table with 26 golds out of 73. Brazil are second with 18 gold medals from 36 overall. The United States lie third with six golds out of a total of 19 medals.
