Is Great Britain any good?

 
Great Britain will be looking to win lots of medals Is Great Britain any good?
The British team has had much success in the Paralympics, finishing second in the medal table four years ago in Sydney.

The team won a massive 131 medals, 41 of them gold.

That looks like loads when compared to the 11 golds the British team won at the Summer Games a month earlier.

But there are lots more events in the Paralympic Games, so there are many more chances to win medals.

The British team has done really well in other Paralympics, finishing in the top four in the medal table in the last five Games.
