This week's #MusicMonday comes from Cuba’s multiple Paralympic and world champion Yunidis Castillo, who returned to the track last year after the birth of her son Gabriel in 2014.

The 28-year-old immediately made an impact, claiming gold in the women’s 100m and 200m T47 at the Toronto 2015 Parapan Am Games.

However, her performance at the Doha 2015 World Championships was far from expected, as she was unable to finish the 100m due to injury.

Now recovered and with the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games in just a few months' time , Castillo says she likes listening to Christian music to relax.

Here are her top three tracks:

“Sabor a Miel” - Diana Mendiola

“Vine a Adorarte” – Marcela Gandara

“Rey” - Christine D'Clario
