Orla Comerford came in last in the final of the Paralympic T13 100m, and while disappointed with her time, was happy to have reached her goal in qualifying for today's race.

The Howth woman clocked a time of 12.87, while the race was won by Leilia Adzhametova of the Ukraine in 11.79.

It is 18-year-old Comerford’s first Paralympic Games, but she admitted her disappointment afterwards, telling RTÉ Sport: “I’m disappointed, I’m not going to lie.

"I suppose the aim was really getting to the final so I really am delighted I did make it at my first major championships. But I'm not happy with that time at all.

"I thought I had more to give, I really did, it just wasn't there on the day, wasn't there at all. But I gave it my all."

The Raheny Shamrocks sprinter continued: "I was just feeling tired. I came out of the blocks, was feeling good and then it just went on me and I don't know why. 

"But sure look, I can't do anything about it, like I am really disappointed. I feel I've let down my coaches and let down my club. But look, I'm happy I made it to the final - that was the goal so, delighted."
