Chinese para-swimmer Zheng Tao has secured his fourth gold medal of the Tokyo 2020 games by winning the 50m freestyle S5 final - despite having no arms.

The 30-year-old, who picked up two Paralympic medals in Rio 2016 and three in London 2012, set a new Games record on Wednesday by recording a time of 30.31s, finishing ahead of countrymen Yuan Weiyi and Wang Lichao who picked up silver and bronze.

But what is more impressive is the sheer dominance Zheng has achieved in the Tokyo pool this summer, with all of his individual gold medals achieved by setting either world or Paralympic records. 

The para-swimmer set a world record in the 50m backstroke final on Monday while he picked up golds in the 50m butterfly and 4x50m freestyle relay on Thursday and Friday of last week.
