Flying The Irish Flag

John Twomey, Austin O’Carroll and Ian Costello take part in the Sonar Sailing Medal Race at 4pm.

Katie George Dunlevy and Eve McCrystal, who have already claimed a gold medal in the Time Trial, are in action again in the Cycling B Road Race at 5.05pm.

The Best Of The Rest

Markus Rehm of Germany is strong favourite in the T44 long jump at 10.41pm. Rehm originally sought to compete at the Olympics, but was ruled ineligible as he could not prove that his prosthetic leg didn’t give him an unfair advantage.

Wheelchair racer Tatyana McFadden of the US, who won gold in the women’s T54 5,000m final, is expected to secure another medal in the 800m T54 at 9.42pm.

13-year-old British prodigy Abby Kane will be hoping to end her Paralympics on a high, as she is set to compete in the 100m backstroke S13 at 11.05pm.

This Should Be Good Too…

Archery is usually an intriguing event to watch, and it should be especially fascinating to see whether the highly fancied British trio of Jo Frith, Jess Stretton and Vicky Jenkins can prevail in the W1 event final at 4.45pm.
