Barry wins silver in Rio

Orla Barry won a silver medal in the F57 discus event to take Ireland's medal at the Paralympics in Rio to eight.

The Corkwoman's throw of 30.06m was enough to go one better than her performance in London four years' ago, where she took bronze.

Algeria's Nassima Saifi took the gold with a throw of 33.33m, while Nigeria's Eucharia Iyiazi finished third.

"I'm delighted to be getting silver," she told RTE Sport.

"One better than I did four years ago so I'm starting to collect the full collection now. To be able to go home with a medal is fantastic."

Barry's bronze means Team Ireland have reached their pre-games target of eight medals, with four alone won on Wednesday as Eoghan Clifford and the tandem pair of Katie-George Dunlevy and Eve McCrystal won gold in the cycling, while Colin Lynch took silver, and Ellen Lynch won bronze in the pool.

In other news, Pat Lynch finished sixth in the KL3 canoe sprint Paralympic final at Rio’s Lagoa Stadium.

The Corkman finished in 42.783 secs, his fastest time of the games over 200m, but almost three seconds behind gold medal winner Serhii Yemelianov of Ukraine.
