Medals flow for Paralympians

September 11, 2016

New Zealand has bagged four more medals at the Paralympics over the weekend.

Sensational swimmer Mary Fisher capped off a great campaign as she collected another gold medal in the pool. She broke the world record twice on her way to gold and the Paralympic title in the S11 100m backstroke.

Sprinter Liam Malone won silver in the men’s T44 100m, while Sophie Pascoe finished second in the women’s 50m freestyle final. Pascoe’s silver was New Zealand’s 200th Paralympic medal.

New Zealand won its second bronze of the Games with Rory McSweeney finishing third in the men’s javelin final.

New Zealand now has two gold, two silver and two bronze medals in Rio to sit 10th on the overall medal table.
