Paralympics: Day Two



It was close! Zhou on the near side really got close. 0.02 seconds the gap, and there was a wait for Libby and Chris Clarke to see what medal it was. They didn't start well but it's where you finish

Liu got the bronze, which means the closest Guilhermina gets to anything sparkly is the stuff she wore on the track

Clegg is obviously happy. What's probably more interesting is what she thoughy about the initial DQ. She seemed to take it in her stride. Clarke was 'fuming'

He's got a John Terry celebration-gatecrashing reference in too. What a guy

Sophie Hahn, Veronica Hipolito and Kadeena Cox getting their gold, silver and bronze from the chairman of Channel 4. Next, Libby Clegg will get her's from Jimmy Carr. Or maybe not

I should say that GB are now top of the medals table!

T42 High jump here. They have a deficency on the leg, still clearing 1.80 plus. Some have one leg

T54 Women's 100 final now. Tatyana McFadden and sister Hannah go in this. No GB involvement in this. Liu in lane 4 is one to watch too.

Liu gets the best start and pulls away. She takes the gold in 16 secs. Tatyana finished well and gets silver. China get a bronze through Li who was closing as well

T42 High jump still going on. Different styles on show as Hassan of Egypt clears 1.74. Singh of India, 1.74 as well, his first go at that height. Nicely done. His PB is 1.82
