Holt ready to bolt in 100m showdown as Australia eye big athletics medal haul

“I can’t fault her prep. It’s been a long build-up. With the extra year in hand, it’s allowed our preparation to be more precise, thought out and have a bit more patience to it.

“She’s good to go. She’s in great shape. She’s shown in her lead-up meets – Brisbane, Gold Coast Townsville and Cairns – that she’s in good shape, and fast.

“We’ve been purely focusing on what she can achieve and focusing on nothing else in the race. If she can go out and run a personal best, that’s our goal achieved because you can’t control what anyone else does.

“She just has to go out and execute her race plan tomorrow. There is definitely a desire to push on and push hard to get that gold medal.”

Meanwhile, Anderson, who is the world record holder in the javelin (which begins at 12.06pm), is one of seven athletes competing at the Paralympics who hold 10 world records between them. They are: Jaryd Clifford (1500m, 5000m, marathon), Anderson (javelin), Madison de Rozario (800m), Holt (100m), James Turner (100m, 400m), Michael Roeger (marathon) and Vanessa Low (long jump).
