Having participated in every Paralympic games and cumulatively won 1,522 medals, #TeamGB sit proudly in 2nd place on the all-time medal table. This position, currently reflecting our 2012 London Games medal position, is an incredible place to hold and reflects how much support and opportunity this country provides for those with disability. So far we’ve won 54 medals in the London 2012 and here’s a recap of the action just in case you missed it.
Our Golden girl Ellie Simmonds smashed a world record to gain gold in the pool.
Richard Whitehead raced through the final 100m of his 200m – T42 race on the track, blitzing his previous world record time with a time of 24.38.
His success was followed by our two Irish sportsmen Jason Smyth and Michael McKillop also winning gold in the men’s T13 100m and 800m T37 respectively.
Two gold’s won in the velodrome for Team GB with Barney Storey piloted Neil Fachie to win the men's Individual B 1km Time Trial.
His success was made that little bit sweeter as his wife and fellow #TeamGB teammate, Sarah Storey went on to win her second gold in her Individual C4-5 500m time Trial event.
Great Britain's Equestrian riders won a fifth successive Team title and backed it up with three Individual medals, including a gold for 24-year-old Sophie Christiansen in Grade Ia.
