The Paralympics wrap up this weekend in London.
There are still plenty of medals to award, though.
Last night, British sprinter Jonnie Peacock wowed the crowd at a packed Olympic Stadium.
He grabbed the gold in the 100 meters race – beating a competitive field that included defending champion Oscar Pistorius.
It was a high-profile event – befitting of these very popular Paralympics.
More tickets were sold for the London Games than for any previous Paralympics.
And the Games have been broadcast to more people in more countries than ever.
