GB star going for gold in two sports

The Paralympic Games officially get going on Wednesday and Britain is sending more than 260 athletes, with a range of disabilities, to Rio to compete.

One of Paralympics GB's brightest stars is Kadeena Cox. She has a condition called multiple sclerosis, which affects the nerves in your body and causes a range of symptoms.

Kadeena's aiming to win medals in two different sports - on the athletics track and in the cycling velodrome!

The BBC's Disability Correspondent Nikki Fox has been to meet her.
