Aled Davies also broke a record alongside winning gold; he's become the first man ever to pass the 17m mark in his particular classification of shot put.

The Welshman told reporters he and his team wanted to go further and they were actually aiming for 18m!

Georgie Hermitage, who claimed a gold, incredibly only returned to training five years ago after being inspired by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

And she hasn't wasted any time - winning gold in the Rio Olympics in 2016 and also a world title in Doha at the 2015 Para-atheltics World Championships.

Not to mention setting a world record in the 400m, go Team GB!
