Paralympics: Day Six



Griswold of the States the probable favourite though...Chinese competitor Zhou also tipped by the commentary team. They're in...and it's GO!

Good start from Hynd but the Ukrainian leads early. Zhou leads at the turn from Griswold and Hynd. Tight into the end Zhou gets gold in the world record time! Hynd gets silver in the end! A new lifetime best, Griswold just 0.24 behind for bronze

1.02.9 that new world record!

Let's not mess around. 100m backstroke S8 for the women. Steph's Slater and Millward go for GB

Long of the US makes a super the turn Millward leads massively though. It's a masterclass this, It could be a is a PR! 1.13.02 Gold for GB, Elliott of Australia gets silver, good swim from Long to get bronze. Think Slater finished fifth

Over to the Estadio Joao Havelange for athletics, Libby Clegg in the 200m T11 final. Chris Clarke her guide

Terezina Guilhermina in this too, finished fourth in the 100m on Friday, those locals who are in the stadium will really want to see her get a medal tonight

They might start soon! We've been waiting on a medal ceremony for the men's T54 early. Won't help the nerves...

Really, not long now. Lanes then: 1 Zhou 3 Guilhermina 5 Liu 7 Clegg
