The Dutch Paralympic team is returning home from the Rio games after finishing in seventh place in the medals table, with 62 medals including 17 golds.
Among the winners were sprinter Marlou van Rhijn, who took gold in both the 100m and 200m on the track. The Dutch also won golds in cycling, wheelchair tennis, swimming and table tennis.
16-year-old Lisa Kruger and Liesette Bruinsma helped the swimming team to five medals, including two golds. Sanne Voets, who was a reserve in the Paralympic dressage competition, went on to win gold in that event.
The athletes will meet king Willem-Alexander later this week to celebrate their success.
