GB add two more medals on world championships final day

The silver made Thornley only the third British woman to win an openweight singles medal at the world championships, but half an hour later newcomer Tom Barras claimed an astounding bronze which made him only the fourth Briton ever to win the men's equivalent.  Holding pace with the highly experienced Ondrej Synek and Angel Fournier Rodriguez, Barras found a final burst of energy to hold off sprinting Rio runner-up Damir Martin, and was cheered from the grandstands by Olympic legend Greg Searle, who managed the exact same feat twenty years ago.
