Frost's gold was her second medal of the competition, she had already collected a bronze in the 100m women's 35-40 age group with a time of 12.74 seconds.

She said: "I was pleased with the bronze in the end as I picked up a slight injury three weeks before and wasn't even sure if I would be able to run so to come out and get a medal was a surprise. The time was disappointing, however the medal made up for that."

Frost is taking some time off before starting winter training and preparing for the European Indoors in Madrid in March where she aims to regain her European titles in the 60m and long jump.
