Indian Paralympian Devendra Jhajharia secured his country's second gold medal at the 2016 Games in style after breaking his own Javelin world record on Tuesday night.
Jhajharia had been holding the record since 2004 after he threw a distance of 62.15 metres at the Athens Paralympics. He threw even further last night in Brazil, improving upon his record by throwing 63.97 metres in Rio.
His third round attempt was made even more special due to the fact that his throw cleared the measured field, and it got quite a deserved celebration as well, with Jhajharia taking a lap of honour after the event had finished.

Footage of his record-smashing throw and following celebration can be seen further down this article.
Jhajharia competes at the Paralympics with an amputated left hand after he was electrocuted while climbing a tree when he was eight-years-old. However, this has not stopped him from pursuing his dreams, and his story, like many other Paralympians, should inspire people across the world.
The 36-year-old will be hoping his gold can help start a landslide of Paralympic medals for his country.
In 2004, he won India's first ever gold, and since then, the country has continued to climb up the medal table in both of the following games in 2008 and 2012.
They currently sit 31st in the table for the 2016 Games, with two gold, one silver, and one bronze medal.
Closer to home, Great Britain managed to match their London 2012 gold medal haul yesterday by winning three in the space of 20 minutes as the action reached a climax on the sixth day.
As they look to break their London records, it only goes to show that the Paralympics has continued to grow in importance after the home Games, and will leave a legacy that many will never forget, not just in Britain, but worldwide.
