Welcome to day nine of the Paralympics.
Great news this morning. After the rush of golds yesterday from Jonnie Peacock, Hannah Cockroft, David Weir, Sarah Storey, Josef Craig and Helena Lucas, Britain are back in their rightful place at No 2 in the medal table, with 31 golds and 108 medals altogether. GB have now exceeded their pre-Games target of recording ?more medals in more sports? than in Beijing, where they won 102. Britain?s greatest enemy, like Mitt Romney?s, is Russia, who also have 31 golds and are third in the table. It will take a lot of true Brit grit to hold them off ?
China are still top of the table and have loads more medals than anyone else.
