Para-athlete Holly Robinson has claimed a silver medal in the Javelin F46 at the World Para Athletics Championships in Dubai with the best throw of 41.60m. 

The current world record holder who reached 45.73 metres in April said although it wasn't the result she wanted, it feels great to put on the black singlet.

"A bit of mixed emotions, I didn’t throw as well as I would have hoped," she said in a statement. 

"It was a pretty tough competition and the nerves were high. I had some alright throws, but I know something big is there it’s just when it’s going to happen. 

As she heads into the New Zealand season, she will be aiming for "a bit more consistency", maintaining a distance around 45 metres.
