There was no time for fun and games in Tokyo for James Turner, the athlete fully focused on the task at hand at his second Paralympic Games.
That professional mindset paid off for the 25-year-old winning gold in the men's T36 400m final on Tuesday afternoon.
The victory comes after Turner took out the 800m event at the Rio Paralympics.
The athlete with cerebral palsy is now undefeated at major competitions, having also won five gold medals at the World Championships.
"It's my job to win, that's what I'm here to do," Turner told Channel 7.
"It means the world to me. If I can give confidence to at least one kid with a disability, then I've done my job well."
Turner was forced to chase through the first 250m, the Russian Paralympic Committee's Evgenii Shvetsov setting the early pace.

Shvetsov faded as the Australian surged to the front in the third 100m. The final straight was a battle of will, with Turner holding on to claim gold in Paralympic-record time.
New Zealand's William Stedman finished third.
Turner was physically spent after the race, the athlete collapsing soon after completing his television interview.
"He's always quick at the start," Turner said of Shvetsov. "I was confident I could get him at the end.
"I've got a headache and I hurt, but it was all worth it."
Turner will be back on track on Friday night for the T36 100m heats. The final will be run on Saturday morning.
