Butt of the joke: Chelsea skipper John Terry
But it was her good-humoured guide Clarke who stole the show in the post race interview with Channel 4.
Being questioned live Libby said: "It's not really hit me just yet. I'm over the moon - we ran a similar time in the semi.
"Almost being disqualified in the semis - these things happen. You have to get on with it and hope for the best.
"Chris has been fantastic. I had a change of guides in November and we started together in February."

Then Clarke chipped in with a golden quote of his own as he mocked Blues legend Terry - who is famous for getting in on trophy celebrations despite not having played in finals - a moment which is sure to tickle fans of Chelsea's rivals.
"She's done all the work... and I'm just here like John Terry," Clarke said on Channel 4 before bursting into laughter along with the millions watching.

Chelsea's John Terry celebrates with the Champions League trophy in his full kit
Terry has a earned a reputation for stealing the limelight and even dressing in full kit to get in photos following Chelsea triumphs.
The most notable came after he was sent off for foolishly kneeing Alexis Sánchez - now of Chelsea's London rivals Arsenal - in the back during a Champions League semi-final match at Barcelona in 2012.
It gave his side a mountain to climb but somehow climb it they did and it also meant he missed the final in Munich.
Terry is a something of a Marmite figure in the game
That did not stop the Marmite figure getting in on the trophy celebrations, though, as he stripped off at the final whistle to reveal a full Chelsea kit despite being banned and ensured he was in all the pictures of the historic moment.
Whatever you thought of Terry for doing it, Clarke's brutal sense of humour while carrying out such a noble role alongside Libby made for what is sure to go down as one of the most memorable moments of the Paralympics.
