Great Britain continued their success at the Rio Paralympic Games after equalling their medal tally from London 2012 during another stellar gold rush on day six. Three golds in the space of 20 minutes helped take GB to 120 medals, the same as they achieved four years ago.

The performance means they are almost certainly guaranteed to match the pre-Games target of 121 set by UK Sport, following in the footsteps of their able-bodied counterparts who won 67 medals at the Olympics in August, and achieved their best ever away performance.

Libby Clegg won her second sprint title of the Games as she added the T11 200m title to her 100m crown in a personal best time. Meanwhile in the pool, Stephanie Millward won the S8 100m backstroke prior to Matt Wylie completing the gold rush with victory in the men's S9 50m freestyle.

Runners Georgie Hermitage, Hollie Arnold in the javelin and table tennis player Rob Davies had all previously won gold as Britain took its tally to 34 in Rio. Ellie Simmonds was unable to retain her S6 400m freestyle title but did win bronze, while Ollie Hynd took silver in the S8 100m backstroke.

The rest of the medals came in the wheelchair tennis event from Jordanne Whiley and Lucy Shuker's bronze in the women's doubles. Andy Lapthorne and Jamie Burdekin repeated the feat in the men's quad doubles.

Day seven is highlighted by Dame Sarah Storey's attempts to add a record 13<sup>th gold in the C5 time trial, while on the track Hannah Cockcroft could lead a British clean sweep in the women's 400m T34 as Britain look to consolidate their highest Paralympic medal tally for 34 years. The 1984 event co-hosted by New York and Stoke Mandeville saw the team win 331 medals in a Games in which only 86 nations competed.
