Japan's Misato Michishita won the gold medal in the women's T12 marathon in a Paralympic record time of 3 hours and 50 seconds for one of the host nation's three marathon medals on Sunday, the final day of action at the Games.

The 44-year-old visually impaired runner was a gold-medal favorite in Tokyo after winning silver at the Rio de Janeiro Games in 2016 and achieving a three-peat at the London Marathon in 2019.
