Welsh have smashed their medal haul from the Rio 2016 Paralympics.

Wales' para-athletes will return home with a total of 14 medals won in Tokyo, eclipsing the seven medals won five years ago.

As the games draw to a close, four golds, three silvers and fourteen bronzes will return to Wales.

Among Welsh medals are two athletes who won more than a single medal in Paul Karabardak and Georgia Wilson.

Welsh medals at the Tokyo Paralympic Games:

  • David Smith | BocciaGold
  • Jim Roberts | Wheelchair rugby | Gold
  • Aled Davies | Shot Put | Gold
  • Laura Sugar | Paracanoe | Gold
  • James Ball | Cycling men’s Tandem 1000m time trialSilver
  • Paul Karabardak | Table tennis men's team | Silver
  • Beth Munro | Taekwondo | Silver
  • Hollie Arnold | Javelin | Bronze
  • Olivia Breen | Women’s long jump | Bronze
  • ​Harri Jenkins | 100m | Bronze
  • Georgia Wilson | Dressage individual test | Bronze
  • Georgia Wilson | Freestyle test | Bronze
  • Paul Karabardak | Table tennis singles | Bronze
  • Tom Matthews | Table tennis singlesBronze

If you were to rank Wales separate from Team GB, Wales would place 32nd overall.

While that puts Wales well short of the Paralympics' big hitters, it does put us ahead of some pretty big sporting countries.

Theoretically, Wales would finish ahead of countries such as Ireland, Denmark, South Korea, South Africa and Sweden.

Of course, such calculations carry some rather large caveats.

Our athletes are part of ParalympicsGB's programme, one of the finest on the planet, and backed by National Lottery funding. 

Also, medals in some events such as cycling and table tennis have been won as part of a team, further complicating our calculation. 

Still, it's not a bad showing from little old Wales. Then again, we always do punch above our weight in the sporting area.
