Clegg, along with guide Chris Clarke, won gold in the women's 100m T11 final at the Olympic Stadium this evening, but only after a topsy-turvy day that saw her break the world record, be disqualified and then be restored to the final on appeal.
The 26-year-old can now add a gold medal to the silvers she won in Beijing and London, and she has enjoyed the Rio Games so far despite a number of troublesome issues marring the build-up.
"It's been a long day. Hopefully I'm going to get to see my family, do the medal ceremony, go through anti-doping because they've caught me here a few years ago, so go through all that and rest for two days before the 200m and just get my head down," she told Sports Mole.
"For me, I do feel like every Paralympics is different. Beijing is different from London, London was different from here. They're all different. I don't think you should really compare them in that sense. Obviously London was really special because it was a home crowd but at the same time, I've now come here and won and that's a totally different feeling from coming second. For me, everybody's been so friendly, the staff have been incredible, really attentive, really welcome, they can't do enough for you.
"Absolutely incredible really. I've been welcomed by all the Brazilian people - I can't complain, it's been absolutely great. The Village is lovely, it's so nice. The transport's been fantastic. I think all the negatives people were saying, this happens every Paralympics, everything's not ready. There's always gonna be some debate or argument going on. And I've not been bitten by a mosquito either!"
Clegg is back in action in the 200m semi-finals on Monday.
