Valeriia Shabalina sets new world record in 100m butterfly win


More world records are being broken at the 2020 Paralympic Games.

It’s the first Olympic title of Shabalina’s career despite being a five-time world champion.

Australia’s Paige Leonhardt won silver with a time of 1:05.48 and was followed closely by teammate Ruby Storm in a time of 1:06.50.

Shabalina will be back in action in the S14 women’s 200m freestyle on Thursday at 8:20 p.m. ET.
