07:36 AEST Sun Sep 2 2012

Australia has retained second spot on the Paralympic medal table after collecting four gold medals on the third day of competition in London.

Evan O'Hanlon, Michael Gallagher, Blake Cochrane and Joann Formosa all collected gold to push Australia to a tally of 11 gold, five silver and 13 bronze medals.

Veteran shooter Libby Kosmala called it a day after competing in her 12th Paralympic Games.

Sprinter O'Hanlon defended his T38 100m title at the Olympic stadium in a world record time of 10.79 seconds.

Gallagher won back-to-back pursuit titles while Cochrane maintained Australia's golden run in the pool.

Meanwhile equestrian rider Formosa ended the 12-year Paralympic reign of Britain's Lee Pearson in the Grade 1b individual championship.
