Superb Ellie Simmonds Grabs Gold. ย Ellie retains her Paralympic title with a world record in the SM6 200m individual medley. ย She now holds 5 Paralympic gold medals.

Ellie is known as the British darling of London 2012 and is the poster girl once more. ย Sports critics have described her medley as heroic and fearless. ย She was superb

Later, she spoke about how it had been a difficult race and wasn’t sure about winning.ย ย She told Channel 4 ย “It’s not sunk in what I’ve done yet. I know my time was under three minutes so I’m really happy with it.”

Simmonds, born with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism, was watched by her family. ย They had travelled from Swansea to watch the amazing swimmer and cried tears of joy at the champion’s performance.

Ellie, who has a title of OBE, began her gold career in Beijing in 2008 and she hasn’t stopped since. ย We want her to keep going
