Hello everyone, welcome to our continued coverage of these 2020 Paralympic Games. Some athletes are already up for running (and swimming and biking), with four triathlon races starting early. More on those in a tick.

For now, and courtesy of my colleague Martin Belam, here are the other main points of interest from another busy day in Tokyo.

All events are listed here in local Tokyo time. Add one hour for Sydney, subtract eight hours for Sheffield, 13 hours for New York, and 16 hours for San Francisco.

  • 9 a.m.-7:36 p.m. Archery – there are qualifying rounds all day tomorrow, but we get to our first medals at 7.16pm with the W1 mixed team bronze and gold competitions 🥇
  • 9 a.m.-11:18 a.m. and 5-7: 47 p.m. Swimming – there are 14 more finals in the second session, which ends with the S14 final of the mixed 4x100m freestyle relay 🥇
  • 9 am-3pm and 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Table Tennis – we get the first medals, with 42 semi-finals in the morning guaranteeing a bronze to whoever loses. Yeah, I said 42. That’s not some kind of Douglas Adams joke. The afternoon session then has five gold medal finals 🥇
  • 9.30am-12.50pm and 7-9 p.m. Athletics – there are 16 gold medals available on Saturday in a packed stadium schedule 🥇
  • 9.30 a.m. – 2.20 p.m. and 4 p.m. – 8.50 p.m. Pétanque – it starts on Saturday with a whole series of individual group matches.
  • 10 am-12.50pm Track cycling – after a few qualifying races, the medals today come from the men’s B 1000m time trial, the women’s B 3000m individual pursuit and the mixed C1-5 750m team sprint 🥇
  • 11 am-6:30pm Weightlifting – four competitions throughout the day, with the medals in the men -72kg and -80kg in front of and behind the women -61kg and -67kg 🥇
  • 2:15 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Wheelchair rugby – the mixed competition reaches the semi-finals stage
  • 4 p.m. – 6:40 p.m. Judo – Saturday’s medal fights concern the -57kg and -63kg women and the -73kg and -81kg men 🥇
  • 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wheelchair fencing – after a day of competition, at 5.30 p.m., it’s time for the fights for the men’s and women’s individual foil medals in category A and in category B.
  • ?? am – ?? pm Wheelchair tennis – after today’s heat debacle I really have no idea what time tennis will start or end, and currently on the Paralympic Games schedule there are still TBDs on the rosters of matches that suggest a start at 11am. So there will be some wheelchair tennis at some point is all I can confidently say.
