1115: Here is a sentence you won’t read very often. Natalie du Toit has been BEATEN in the heats of the women’s S9 100m backstroke, Britain’s Stephanie Millward pushing her into second place. There will be a chance for the South African powerhouse to restore normality in tonight’s final.
1122: Three attempts down in the men’s club throw for F31/32/51 athletes. The leader at present is Zeljko Dimitrijevic of Serbia, the F51 competitor whose throw of 26.88m earned him 1010 points.
1140: The men’s goalball tie between ParalympicsGB and Turkey has just begun. Goalball is a sport which will be alien to most spectators, it involves three blind players on each team trying to roll a ball into the opposition’s net. The ball has a bell inside, so spectators must remain quiet at all times.
1216: Michael Phelps holds the record for the most Olympic medals won, with 22. But I know a Swedish shooter who laughs when presented with such a meagre total. Let me introduce you to Jonas Jakobsson, a man who devors Paralympic metal. He has been to nine Games, collecting 28 MEDALS along the way. He goes for a 29th in the R1-10m Air Rifle Standing-SH1 final in around 15 minutes, would you bet against him?
1239: World record holder Hannah Cockroft is going in the women’s T34 100 meters. The Briton became the first athlete to break a world record at the Olympic Stadium during a test event earlier this year, can she repeat the trick?
1241: And Cockroft, who calls here wheelchair "Sally", has just eased to a new Paralympic record of 18.24 seconds. Wow. That was done with absolute ease, surely a gold medal awaits this evening?
1309: Jonas Jakobsson has his 29th medal, impressive, but it’s not gold. The Swede could only manage silver in the men's R1-10m air rifle standing-SH1. The 47-year-old has three more events at these Games, so he could have 32 before he leaves theses shores.
1330: Blind five-a-side football is one of the Paralympic disciplines which truly astounds me. The speed and ability of the players is incredible. Having spent a lifetime attempting to be halfway decent at football, I can only imagine how difficult it must be to play blind.
1420: The second of which arrived earlier today with Ivory Nwokorie taking gold in the women’s -44kg powerlifting. A strong start to the 2012 Games from Nigeria.
1452: We care too! That gold medal went to the Great Dane himself Jackie Christiansen in the men’s F42/44 shot put. He has Paralympic previous, have taken home the title in 2008. Denmark’s only medal of the Games so far, but they still have nine and a half days of competition to address that.
1500: The announcer has just asked the crowd to be silent in the blind five-a-side football match between Iran and Argentina. The South Americans lead 2-0 in the second half and the Iranians have just missed a penalty.
1506: I think we're all happy with what we've seen today. World records tumbling, gold medals galore, even the sun is shining! The focus has switched back to the Velodrome, with the men’s C4-5 1km individual Time Trial final under way. There is going to be a huge hole in my life when that Velodrome shuts its doors…
1516: Two riders left in the men’s C4-5 individual 1km time trial final, one from China and one from Britain. Gold is currently going to Spain courtesy of Alfonso Cabello. Tension rises as world championship silver medalist Liu Xinyang climbs into the starting gate. Hold onto your hats…
1519: Liu Xinyang can only go third fastest. It all comes down to ParalympicGB's Jody Cundy, the crowd fall silent and await another home gold medal...
1535: Jody Cundy is still apoplectic with rage, heartbreaking for the double gold medalist from Beijing. Cundy seen to be telling the officials: “I’ve wasted four years of my life.” A once in a lifetime chance gone for the British cyclist.
