Just Saying: Paralympic Games, Day 2.

Britain’s athletes have won 16 medals in the first two days of the Tokyo Paralympics.

So far, ParalympicsGB have won six gold medals, seven silver medals and three bronze.


They are currently second in the world, just behind China.

GB gold medal winners include wheelchair fencer Piers Gilliver and one of Britain’s most decorated para-athletes, Lee Pearson, who won his 12th Paralympics gold medal today in dressage.

In the swimming, GB broke not one but TWO world records!

Tully Kearney smashed the world record for the Women’s 100 metre Freestyle S5 event by more than two seconds.

While Maisie Summers-Newton set a new world record in the SM6 200m individual medley final.

Both athletes won gold medals for their performances.

Maisie’s win was especially notable, as she beat the record of her long-time hero and GB team-mate Ellie Simmonds.

Yesterday cyclist Sarah Storey won Britain’s first gold medal in the C5 3,000 metre individual pursuit track cycling event.

This is Sarah’s eighth Paralympic Games!

Not to be outdone, cyclist Jaco Van Gass secured gold in the men’s C3 3000m individual pursuit in a world record time.
