September 1, 2012 13:56 pm
Gemma Prescott added a Paralympic bronze medal in the F31/32/51 club throw at the Olympic Stadium.
The 28-year-old threw a new European record of 20.50 metres, equating to 1015 points to claim Great Britain's fourth athletics medal of the Games.
Team-mates Josie Pearson and Maxine Moore were fifth and 12th respectively.
Prescott said: "That was an amazing experience. I'm absolutely delighted with a bronze medal, I am really struggling for words."
Rob Womack made it three host medals with bronze in the F54/55/56 shot put.
The 41-year-old threw a personal best 11.34m, which translated into 972 points.
And he cupped his ears in celebration to roars from the crowd when it was announced he had got bronze.
The medals kept on coming for Great Britain as Claire Williams won bronze in the F11/12 discus. The 24-year-old threw 39.63m, which worked out at 908 points.
