There have been two more medals for Cornwall at the paralympics.

Over the weekend Truro's Gemma Prescott took bronze in the women's club throw.

The city's Matt Whorwood got bronze in the men's four hundred metre freestyle.

It is his third Paralympic bronze after taking two in Beijing.

He is in action again later on Monday, along with St Stephen gold medallist Jonathan Fox in the hundred metres freestyle.

His dad Eric told Pirate FM: "He sacrifices a lot for his swimming. He puts in a lot of training. He trains eighteen hours a week up in Manchester now at the high performance centre. On average he swims between forty-five and fifty thousand metres every week."
