After the excitement of the Olympics this summer it is time to settle down in front of the tv again to watch the British team in the Paralympics! More sport! With fewer events, it means tv coverage finishing at 1am which I can live with so I'm staying glued to it! So here, after my drumroll, are the medal winners from Day One!
Lets start at the velodrome for the track cycling, my favourite event! First up was Megan Giglia who overcame a stroke claim gold. Go girl!
Dame Sarah Storey becomes a gold medal winner for the 12th time becoming the greatest ever female GB paralympian. She is amazing!
Crystal Lane wins a brilliant silver in the same event! Look at that smile!
Steve Bate with pilot Adam Duggleby win gold as well! Not only are these guys brilliant athletes, they were very funny in interview. Great stuff!
Ollie Hynd takes gold in the swimming!
Gold also in the pool for Bethany Firth! Bronze in the same event for Jessica-Jane Applegate!
Silver for Harriet Lee in the swimming!
Silver for Jonathan Fox in the swimming!
Stephanie Millward takes bronze in the pool!
Bronze also for Andrew Mullen in the pool!
Eleven medals on day one! How exciting was that! It gets Team GB off to a great start with a lot more excitement to come! Have you been watching? How is your country doing? How cute are those mascots!
