SWIMMING: Katja Dedekind second in her 400m S13 freestyle heat

Katja Dedekind, bronze medallist from the women’s 100m back yesterday, has finished second in her heat of the women’s 400m freestyle S13.

She came home just behind Carlotta Gilli of Italy.

It should be enough to make the final…

Bit warm in Tokyo today,

So warm in fact that it might force a delay in the tennis, so says Quentin Hull.

SWIMMING: Braedan Jason into final of the S13 400m freestyle

Braedan Jason came second in his heat of the Men’s 400m freestyle S13, swimming 4:21.59 to finish 11 seconds behind Ukraine’s Kyrylo Garashchenko.

In these longer races, it’s all about getting through to the final, and he has done that, qualifying sixth fastest.

Ihar Boki of Belarus qualified fastest with a 4:06. He’s the one to beat as current world record holder.

And both have made it through to tonight’s final!

Great stuff from the Aussies!

ATHLETICS: Isis Holt sprints to a Paralympic record!

A great heat from Isis Holt! She runs a 13.49 to win heat two of the 100m by a distance and qualify for the final!

Only 0.06 outside her world record too. Tidy.

Remember, she’s had a break from competing, but appears to have lost none of her race-sharpness. That was excellent, and she’s all smiles as she disappears down the tunnel.

She’ll be back for the final at 1:45pm AEST

WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL: Australia still in command

It was a better quarter from Algeria, but Australia still outscored them 20-14 to lead 62-31 heading into the final quarter.

TABLE TENNIS: Trevor Hirth falls to defeat against Paul Karabardak

Disappointing for Australia’s Trevor Hirth, who is beaten 3-0 by Great Britain and Northern Ireland’s Paul Karabardak, 11-5, 11-8, 11-2.

The Welshman is a tough competitor though, who also won his first match yesterday, 3-1 against Bobi Simion.

What are Australia’s medal chances today? 

morning straya from the west coast.
how many medal hopes do we have today?

-true blue

Hi, true blue

So, at the moment, we have four swimmers in finals, with the potential for four more to join them in finals after their heat swims coming up.

We also have two cyclists already in a final, with Alistair Donohoe hoping to qualify for the medal races.

Two athletes are in the men’s javelin final already too, and Emma Booth will go for gold in the individual dressage later.

So, as things stand, nine. But that is likely to increase throughout the morning.

By Simon Smale

Firstly, thank you for this blog, it is so helpful! I’ve just heard on channel 7 that both the men’s and women’s cycling time trials are medal events today? Is that correct?

-Love the Paralympics!

Hi, Love the Paralympics.

They absolutely are, so the Aussie gold rush could start early today…

We’ll be keeping our eye on the velodrome from 11:00am AEST as Amanda Reid goes for gold in the C2 500m time trial.

WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL: Australia in complete control at half time

It’s 42-17 at the break and this is turning into something of a rout for the Aussies.

The Rollers are sharing the scoring around too, Bill Latham has not played a second of action in that second quarter, so he has not added to his 10 points from the first quarter, but Tom O’Neill-Thorne has 9 points with 5 assists and Tristan Knowles has 7 points.

The Aussies are only shooting at 54 per cent from the field too, although the Algerians are operating at just 38 per cent.

SWIMMING: Ruby Storm finishes third in her 200m S14 freestyle heat, qualifies for final

A solid swim from Ruby Storm, but she’ll have her work cut out should she make the final.

The two British swimmers in the centre lanes, Bethany Firth and Lousie Fiddes, were streets ahead (seven seconds, to be exact).

Worryingly, Firth was swimming well within herself too. She was eight seconds outside her own world record of 2:02.09, although that was set all the way back in 2016 and she’s not been close to that time in the intervening years.

It’s enough to qualify seventh overall and make the final.
