Hello, welcome to the sixth day of these Tokyo Paralympic Games. Thirteen sports to enjoy today, with medals up for grabs in seven of them. Before we go any further, here are some highlights that await us, courtesy of my colleague Martin Belam.

All events are listed here in local Tokyo time. Add one hour for Sydney, subtract eight hours for Bangor, 13 hours for New York and 16 hours for San Francisco.

  • 8.30 am Shot – It is the first day of shooting, which begins with the classification for the SH1 category of men’s and women’s 10-meter air rifle. At 11 a. M., The women’s contest reaches the final stage, and the men seek their gold medal at 1:15 p.m. The session is completed with a third gold medal on offer in the SH2 mixed foot competition with a 10 m air rifle. In the SH2 class, athletes have disabilities that mean they cannot support the weight of the rifle, so use a shooting stand. China dominated the overall shooting in Rio in 2016, but the Slovak couple from Radoslav Malenovsky and Veronika Vadovicova Come to the SH1 events on Monday in a strong position. He won the 2018 world championship and she is defending her title in an event that she also won in Beijing in 2008 🥇

M. and 5.30pm Archery – pretty soon there is a clash of the British, as Jessica Stretton and Pine Phoebe Patterson they have faced each other in the quarterfinals in the women’s individual compound competition.
