One Week In and 17 Gold Medals, 24 Silver & 15 Bronze. A total of 56 at the time of writing.
Team GB are doing us proud. Yes there has been some heartache but overall so far the Paralympics have been fabulous.
The competitors are the true gold in these events, they show such heart, such spirit.
British cyclist are once again leading the way to Gold Medals at the London 2012 Paralympics.
Sarah Storey has provided Britain’s first gold, and the eighth of her career, on the very first day of the competition.
Jonathan Fox broke the world record in the 100m backstroke heat this morning, then went on to take gold in the final.
Nyree Kindred took silver in the S6 100m backstroke while Hannah Russell took silver in the S12 400m freestyle. And did it in a British record time just to hammer the point home.
And so it goes on. At the time of writing Team GB are 3rd in the medal stakes with seven medals in total. That’s two gold, three silver and two bronze. Not a bad haul for the first day.
Actually it’s brilliant. The national feel good factor has increased exponentially since the conclusion of yesterdays opening ceremony. May it continue to do so.
