Great Britain's Aled Davies wins bronze medal in shot put at the London Paralympics.

Aled Davies has won Great Britain's first track and field medal at the London Paralympics after finishing third in the F42/44 shot put.

Davies earned the bronze medal with a throw of 13.78m for a total of 961 points, and has said that he was pleased with his performance.

"It was a really hard competition but I was confident," the 21-year-old Welshman told BBC Radio Five Live.
