Team GB have continued their gold rush at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio, with Andy Lewis and Kadeena Cox among those adding to the medal haul.

Lewis, who had his right leg amputated at 22, made history by winning gold in the first triathlon event to appear at the Paralympics. He stormed to victory in the water, on the bike and on track to win Team GB's 13th gold of the games.

The 33-year-old crossed the finishing line with a time of one hour 11 minutes 49 seconds in the PT2 event.

Cox made more history, becoming the first Briton since 1988 to win medals in two different sports at the same competition.

Cox claimed bronze in the T38 100m on Friday (9 September), adding a gold for cycling gold in the C4-5 500m time trial, matching Isabel Barr's feat at the 1988 Paralympic Games in Seoul.

There was more British success in the cycling events with Hannah Cockroft successfully defending her T34 100m title, finishing ahead of 15-year-old Team GB teammate Kare Adenegan, who claimed the silver medal.

Great Britain have now secured 35 medals in Rio with Sabrina Fortune, Alice Tai, Toby Gold and Andy Small all driving up that number on Saturday. Fortune took bronze in the F20 women's shot put with Alice Tai also picking up bronze in the women's S10 100m backstroke.

Meanwhile, 2012 gold medallist Richard Whitehead set a new Paralympic record of 23.07 seconds when he qualified for Sunday's T42 200m final.
