Hokitika javelin thrower Holly Robinson has claimed the silver medal in the F46 class javelin at the Paralympic world athletics championships in Lyon, France.
The 18-year-old smashed her previous personal best throw - set when she finished seventh at the London Paralympics - by almost two metres with a heave of 34.37m, establishing a New Zealand record in the process.
The competition was won by Britain's Hollie Arnold with a throw of 37.45m.
Robinson, who was born with a left arm shortened just below the elbow, has her sights firmly fixed on the Rio Paralympics in 2016 and has moved to Dunedin to train under top coach Raylene Bates.
