The 24-year-old snatched bronze in the Women’s 100m T34, behind gold and silver medal winners Hannah Cockroft and Kare Adenegan from the UK.

“I think I just wanna show all the kids out there, with disabilities or not, if you have a dream chase it. Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t,” Lambird told 7Sport.

“There’s always a way, and you can always find that way.”

Lambird also caught the crowd’s attention after the race, making a joke of stealing Cockroft’s gold medal before actually accepting their own third place prize.

Lambird joins USA’s Laura Goodkind and Aussie Maz Strong among three non-binary athletes representing at this year’s games.
