1243: Bit of background for you on Nemati. She used to compete in the national taekwondo team until her legs were paralysed in an earthquake.
In 2003, at just 18-years-old, Nemati was injured when an earthquake struck the town of Bam, killing 26,000 people.
1251: Quick check of the medal table and it looks like this:
China: 48 gold, 16 in total
GB: 19 gold, 66 in total
Russia: 17 gold, 50 in total
Ukraine: 15 gold, 42 in total
1417: This woman is just unstoppable. Dutch Wheelchair Tennis star Esther Vergeer wraps up her 468th consecutive win. It's like trying to imagination the size of the universe - so big it doesn't even make sense.
She thrahed Thailand's Sakhorn Khanthasit 6-1, 6-0 to go into the semis.
1426: Brilliant research Jess. But alas, Tina is no family member of mine. Follow the link below and you'll come face to face with Aussie wheelchair basketballer Tina McKenzie.
Her hobbies are: "Walking her dog, having coffee with friends and reading."
So we're pretty much sisters. Except I've got a cat.
1429: In fact, Tina's at it right now. Wheelchair basketball, not walking her dog. The Aussie women have just beaten Mexico 62-37 in the quarterfinals.
1507: Ok, I think I've found my new favorite Paralympic sport: Blind long jump. These guys are fanastic. The competitors run along the track with their guide yelling out when it's time to jump. It's quite literally a leap of faith.
And what a leap at that. The Ukraine's Ruslan Katyshav has taken gold in the Men's Long Jump - F11, with a whopping 6.46m.
1549: It's all about to, quite literally, kick off at the blind five-a-side football, with Great Britain facing Iran. The crowd has just been told to be quiet so the players can hear the specially-designed ball with a bell inside.
1555: Blind football. But how do they know WHAT'S HAPPENING? Here's a quick tip: the players yell out 'boy' to each other when they're in a position to pass or take a pass. This is talent on a whole other level.
1619: Three Paralympians who have already made a huge impact on the 2012 Games attempt to add to their significant medal hauls today. The trio are swimming queens Natalie du Toit and Eleanor Simmonds and king of the track David Weir.
1631: Natalie du Toit is almost peerless when it comes to Paralympic swimming achievement. The South African is a 12-time Games medalist and 11 of those are gold. She made history by competing in the Olympic open-water swim in Beijing and has already won gold in the 100m S9 butterfly in London. I think it’s fair to say she enters tonight’s 400m freestyle final as a heavy favorite.
1636: But it won’t be Du Toit who gets the loudest roar of the night in the Aquatics Centre, that honor will be reserved for one very special 17-year-old. Ellie Simmonds has already won two gold medals at London 2012, with organizers already having to replace the roof on the Zaha Hadid designed building twice after ecstatic British fans blew it off. But Simmonds will have to go some to win gold in the 50m freestyle S6 final, where American Victoria Arlen and Tanja Groepper of Germany will start as favorites.
1645: David Weir is London born and bred and he fulfilled a dream by romping to men’s 5000m T54 gold on Sunday. The seven-time medal winner goes in another final tonight, but his rivals will be keen to restrict Weir in the 1500m meter showpiece. Weir will need to use all of his racing knowhow to complete a golden double.
1659: A lot of you having been hugely impressed by the blind football, and rightly so. Paralympics GB are currently 1-0 down to Iran and facing up to the prospect of a group stage exit. The hosts need three goals in the closing stages of the match to advance. It’s not looking likely.
1711: Of course, Spr. The first Boccia gold medal of the Games has been won by Brazil, who beat the Czech Republic in the mixed pairs BC4 classification. The BC3 final between Portugal and Greece is underway, while China and Thailand face off in the BC1-2 division.
1714: For those of you asking yourselves, “what is boccia?” Let me enlighten you. It is a sport based on boules and bocce which is primarily for competitors with cerebral palsy. Competitors much roll red and blue leather balls as close to the white jack as possible.
