Hills wheelchair racer comes fourth 

West Pennant Hills wheelchair racer Rosemary Little came within a whisker of winning her second Paralympic bronze medal last night.

The experienced racer, 30, lost out to British home favourite Hannah Cockroft who won gold with a Paralympic record of 31.90 seconds, and Dutch duo Amy Siemons (34.16) and Desiree Vranken (34.85).

Little was disappointed not to win a second Paralympic medal but was proud with her effort on the night.

‘‘I knew my arms ... had no strength going through them tonight,’’ Little said.

‘‘Unfortunately with distonia it’s the luck of the draw.

‘‘I only started training seriously in December and racing in January so I’m happy with my achievements.''
