Holly Breaks World Record to take Gold!


Yorkshire’s Holly Arnold took Gold in the F46 Javelin Final in Rio, smashing the World Record in the process.

The 22 year old former Yorkshire Talent Squad member threw 43.01 meters to take the Paralympic Title.

“This has been my absolute dream – I cannot believe I am Paralympic champion and double world champion. It is so surreal,” Arnold told Channel 4.

Well done Holly, your friends at DSY are very proud of you! #Yorkshire
