The women’s quad of Lola Anderson, Ella Toa, Molly Harding and Lucy Glover won the first of six gold medals for GB, these combined with two silver medals resulted in GBs best-ever performance topping the medal table.

Congratulations to Lola from all at Surbiton High School and the Green and Silver Club.
