Team GB’s golden couple of the pool, Sascha and Nyree Kindred, have a combined medal haul of over 20 golds in international competitions, and both have the opportunity to add to that tally on day five. Sascha will compete first in the Men’s SM6 200m individual medley before cheering on his wife as she races alongside Ellie Simmonds in the women’s heats.
Keep an eye out for Lee Pearson this afternoon as he aims for his third possible equestrian gold medal of these Paralympics in the individual freestyle test. If all has gone well earlier in the Games, winning today will take him to 12 gold medals in total, making him Britain’s most successful Paralympian of all time.
The final group match of the wheelchair basketball sees Team GB looking to secure their place in the knockouts by beating Japan.
