Scots teenager Lyle wins bronze

SCOTLAND’S Maria Lyle clinched 100m T35 bronze in another successful session for ParalympicsGB.

The 16-year-old World silver medalist in the same event clocked 14.41 with China’s Zhou Xia setting a new Paralympic record of 13.66 for gold and Australia’s Isis Holt finishing second.

Lyle, from Dunbar, who is competing in the Paralympics for the first time said: “It’s not really sunk it. It wasn’t my best race and the time wasn’t very good but I got a medal and not everyone gets a medal so I’ve got to be happy with that.

“It’s a bit weird to be here at a Paralympic Games, I’ve enjoyed myself and that’s the main thing. Athletics helps to give me a sense of a purpose.”
