Day 1 Australia 1 Gold 1 Silver 2 Bronze
Great Britain 5 Gold 3 Silver 3 Bronze
So time for Aussies to get some serious exercising as they are going to have their work cut out:-).
I did UK’s exercise quota
However, well Done to Stephanie Millward in getting Bronze in 400m freestyle, maybe more medals to come.
We use EDSS to measure disability. But maybe we should use the paralympic scale.
In London 2012 Stephanie was graded as an S9. This year in Rio 2016 she is graded as a S8 and therefore this would say to me that her MS has continued to worsen. This shows the difficultly for someone with MS verses the injured or born with paralympians where their disability may be more static.
The best way to limit the worsening is to get on top of the disease with treatment
