The 2012 Paralympics moves into the third day of action, after an impressive opening two days. The Chinese lead the medal table with 13 golds, followed by Australia with seven and Ukraine with six. The hosts, Team GB, are close behind with four gold medals to their name and will be hoping their athletes can repeat the heroics of London Olympics 2012 champions like Victoria Pendleton, Mo Farah and Chris Hoy, to pick up vital wins in Cycling and Athletics events.

Day Two Recap:

The second day of the London 2012 Paralympics was an excellent one for the hosts, whose cyclists picked up two gold, three silver and a bronze medal. Mark Colbourne took gold in the men's Ind. C1 Pursuit event, while Jon-Allan Butterworth and Aileen McGlynn took silver in the men's Ind. C4-5 1km Time Trial. Shaun McKeown and Darren Kenny closed silver and bronze in the men's Ind. C3 Pursuit event.

Team GB's Hannah Cockroft

Hannah Cockroft, who won Team GB's first gold, broke the Paralympic Record to take gold in the women's 100m - T34 Wheelchair race. It was a momentous day for Cockroft, who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of five.

Team GB also enjoyed an excellent day in the swimming pool as brothers Oliver and Sam Hynd raced to silver and bronze, respectively, in the men's 400m freestyle - S8. Heather Frederiksen took silver in the women's version of the event. James Crisp and Stephanie Millward followed suit, winning silvers for the men's and women's 100m backstroke - S9 - events, while Aaron Moores also took silver, in the men's 100m backstroke S14 event.
