Seven times GB athletes thrilled us at London 2017

Hannah Cockroft at London 2017

The World Para Athletics Championships London 2017 may have finished, but the memories will burn bright for some time.

If you're feeling a little blue now Great Britain's heroes are taking a well-deserved rest, fear not, we've selected seven golden moments that will take you right back into those scintillating 10 days...

ALED DAVIES LETS IT ALL OUT

One of GB's most lovable characters had already bagged gold in the F42 discus with a championship record on the first weekend. But he left his best for the final Saturday, lobbing the shot put a massive 17.52 metres for a world record. His emotional celebrations said it all.

RICHARD WHITEHEAD SPARKS SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER

"Here he goes, the big man!" roared the commentator as Whitehead unleashed his trademark home straight-burst to claim the T42 200m gold. The double amputee sprinter, one of the stars of the London 2012 Paralympics, got the stadium rocking on the first Saturday.

JONNIE PEACOCK BEATS CRAMPS TO WIN GOLD

The golden boy of the British team, Peacock had cruised through the heats and looked set to challenge the world record. However, he was beset by cramps shortly before the final and showed his warrior spirit to hold off the USA's Jarryd Wallace and Germany's Johannes Floors to take the T44 100m title. He's now a double Paralympic and world champion in the event.

SAMMI KINGHORN SERVES NOTICE WITH WORLD RECORD

The 21-year-old Scot was looking to use London 2017 as a springboard to challenge for golds at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, but she surprised everyone - including herself - by coming away from the London Stadium with two golds and one bronze. Her first race, when she smashed the T53 200m world record, served notice that a new star had arrived.

CROWD ROARS KADEENA COX HOME

The Rio 2016 Paralympic champion made winning the T38 400m gold look easy, but the reality was very different. Cox had been suffering from a back injury and the effects of her multiple sclerosis, and said she "was dying a death" in the last 100m. However, roared on by the "amazing London crowd", Kadeena found the strength to power home.

GOLDEN TREBLE FOR UNWELL HANNAH COCKROFT

'Hurricane Hannah' never ceases to amaze. The triple gold medallist from the Rio 2016 Paralympics was struck down by food poisoning just before her first London 2017 event, the T34 100m, but still won gold in a world record time. She then bagged the 800m title before dragging her exhausted body around the track one more time to win the 400m gold and complete an unforgettable hat-trick.

SOPHIE HAHN COMPLETES SPRINT DOUBLE

Two gold medals, two world records. Twenty-year-old Hahn's London 2017 record speaks for herself, but her blistering performance in the T38 100m final, when she left team-mate Kadeena Cox in her slipstream, sends a shiver down the spine.
