Beijing - South Africa collected three gold medals and a bronze on the second day of the Paralympics in Beijing to bring their tally after two days to four gold and the one bronze.

Natalie du Toit who won South Africa's first gold medal in a world record time in the 100m butterfly on Sunday, added a second when she won the 100m freestyle, just outside the world mark.

Charl Bruwer claimed gold in the 400m freestyle while Philippa Johnson added the fourth gold in the Individual Equestrian Championships (Grade IV).

Nicholas Newman was in line for a silver medal in the javelin but his distance was overtaken in the last round and he had to settle for bronze.
