Congratulations to Britain's Paralympic team on a superb performance
Congratulations to everyone in Britain's Paralympic team on a superb performance.
Great Britain closed the Rio Paralympics with 64 gold medals, the most by a British team since 1988.
ParalympicsGB surpassed their London 2012 medal tally of 120 on day nine of the Games in Rio and finished with 147, second in the medal table behind China.
They also matched the highest number of gold medal sports at a Paralympics with 11, matching China at Beijing 2008.
That represents the most incredible effort and everyone involved should be very proud.
