New nations on the Paralympic medal table

The paralympic games are in ful swing and there has been plenty of fine sport to watch. At present 70 nations have won mealsjust six short of the the record 76 nations that won medals in Beijing- and there are over four days to go.

Three new nations have joined the all time medal list with podium places in track and field events: Fiji (gold), Ethiopia and Sri Lanka (bronze medals).

Here's hoping that the meal table for the London games will be longer than that at Beijing with more countries winning their first medals.
