17 year old swimmer Ellie Simmonds, one of the poster girls for the London 2012 Paralympics, has delighted the home crowds in the Aquatics Centre over the last couple of days by winning not one but 2 gold medals in the pool. The young swimmer from Swansea now also has two shiny new world records to her name in the 200m individual medley and the 400m freestyle.

However she does tonight, Ellie can be sure the whole nation will be behind her willing her on to further victory. What a fantastic athlete!
