Chuckles Goes Paralympic Day Two

Day Two and there was plenty more excitement in Rio for Team GB! This has been a fantastic performance from the guys and girls! Here are the medal winners for Day Two!

We'll start with athletics today...bear with me, it could take a while, and the awesomeness that is Jonnie Peacock. That boy is just amazing! I stayed up past midnight to watch him win gold!

After all the drama of being disqualified then reinstated, Libby Clegg takes gold with her guide Chris Clarke. Relief!

Georgie Hermitage wins gold in the 100 metres for her classification! Superb run!

Sophie Hahn wins gold in her 100 metre classification!

With a brilliant bronze in the same event for Kadeena Cox! 

Stef Reid takes silver in the long jump!

Gemma Prescott takes bronze in the club throwing!

Over to the velodrome and it was gold at last for Jody Cundy in dominant style!

Sophie Thornhill and pilot Helen Scott also take cycling gold!

Louis Rolfe takes bronze!

Ali Jawad gets his long awaited medal and it is a fantastic silver!

Zoe Newson takes bronze in the powerlifting!

Finally over to the swimming pool where Ellie Robinson takes gold at fifteen!

Steph Slater takes silver in the pool!

Bronze in the pool for Susannah Rodgers!

And bronze in the pool for Lewis White!

Also huge congratulations to Ireland's Jason Smyth on his 100 metre gold, taking his paralympic total to FIVE gold medals. Well done Jason!

Whew! Exciting stuff! Now I'm off to get ready for Day Three!
