The penultimate day of competition sees Welsh javelin world record holder Nathan Stephens attempting to overcome the heartbreak of finishing fourth in Beijing, where his best throw ended up just centimetres short of a medal.
Oscar Pistorius races in the T44 400m tonight. This is his strongest distance; in Beijing, the South African finished three whole seconds ahead of his nearest rival. If anyone can close the gap on the favourite, this could be one of the highlights of the week.
In one of the more surprising sporting rivalries of the Paralympics, Iran and Bosnia-Herzegovina have met in the men’s sitting volleyball final for the past three Games. Today’s contest may well be another grudge match between the two nations.
