Great Britain’s Daniel Pembroke smashed his personal best and sets a new European record of 66.75 in the F13 men’s javelin final.

The 29-year-old from Herefordshire was diagnosed with RP (Retinitis pigmentosa) when he was six and his eyesight became further impaired during his twenties.

As a junior athlete, he competed for Great Britain and Northern Ireland in three age-group championships; his highest placing was 11th in the javelin at the 2011 IAAF World U20 Championships in Moncton, Canada.
