Paralympics: Day Six



I'm going to sign off for the day. Here's the top of the medal table for those who care about that (gold/total) China 63/147 GB 34/74 Ukraine 27/72 US 21/60 Brazil 10/43 That's it from me, see you soon

A roundup of GB golds today: Matt Wylie, Stephanie Millward winning golds in the pool, as well as Libby Clegg on the track in the T11 200m, Georgie Hermitage in the T37 400m .Holly Arnold in the field, and Rob Davies in the table tennis in four games

And another! Jordanne Whiley and Lucy Shuker take bronze beating the Japanese pair of Kamiji and Nijo 6-3, 0-6, 6-1

Aaaand another tennis medal for GB! It's the longest ever Paralympic wheelchair tennis match, in the quad doubles, and Andy Lapthorne and Jamie Burdekin have won bronze. Eventually. Four hours and 25 minutes, but they've got their medals

A line from the women's F54 javelin earlier - a new WR of 20.25 for Nigeria's Ugwanwa to secure her a gold medal

Libby Clegg and Chris Clarke have just been on the podium and we've had all the fun and formalities of the medal ceremony

Talk about false starts and maybe how it can be unfair how one strike and you're gone. How about stalls like in horse racing? No, oh okay

Disken of Oz got the silver, Yamada of Japan getting bronze. You could have thrown a towel over them. Well actually, it would be a very wide towel. But a close finish all round - 0.2 seconds separated the top six

And a gold in the pool for GB as well, Matt Whylie has won the S9 50m free by pretty much a fingertip!

Liu got the silver, good rum after the bend. Zhou with the bronze
