Teenager Ambra Sabatini announced herself on the global stage by breaking the world record in the 100 metres T63 at the World Para Athletics Grand Prix in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

The 19-year-old, making her international debut, clocked 14.59sec to clinch gold and better the previous record of 14.61 set by fellow Italian Martina Caironi.

Elena Kratter and Sofia Gonzalez, both of Switzerland, followed in 16.40 and 16.84 respectively to secure the other two medals.

"I feel very excited," said Sabatini who had set the Italian 60m record at an indoor competition two weeks ago.

"I didn’t realise my finish time, I just put all my energy to get a good timing here.

"I am really happy now to see that I got a world record.

"This is my first international competition.

"I will start my preparation for Tokyo 2020 now."
