Warrender’s Scott Quin missed out on Paralympic gold by an agonising three-hundredths of a second as British team-mate Aaron Moores held on for victory in Rio.

Capital swimmer Quin, 26, who set a Games record in the heats, was second at the turn in the 100m breaststroke SB14 final but threatened to steal victory with a brilliant finish before Moores, the world record holder, grabbed the win in 1:06.67.

“That was some race,” said Quin. “All this season, Aaron and me have been at it at every meet we’ve had. In the call room, the tension was incredible. It was an honour to race him.”
