The twenty-three-year old from Bridgend was unable to add another gold medal to the one he won at the Paralympic Games in London two years ago.

However, his silver means that Team Wales have now won 20 medals at this years Games - surpassing the total achieved by the team at Delhi four years ago.

That now equals the number of medals Wales managed to achieve at the Delhi Games four years ago - and puts them just eight shy of the pre-Games target of 27.

After a tight start it was a relatively comfortable win for the trio of Jonathan Tomlinson, Marc Wyatt and Paul Taylor, who beat Australia 16-13.

We are concerned about the placement of this advert and will work with the media owner to investigate.
