Paralympics 2012 – Day 10
Oscar Pistorius could come away from these Paralympics without an individual gold medal – a prospect which was unthinkable a week ago.
The South African icon has his last chance in the T44 400m tonight at 9.57pm, and Brazilian Alan Oliveira, who stunned Pistorius in the 200m, will once again be gunning for the scalp.
Britain’s swimmers will be looking to Ellie Simmonds to give the team the perfect finish when she targets her third gold and fourth medal of the Paralympics in the S6 100m freestyle (5.51pm).
American Victoria Arlen will be her main rival again. Other medal chances are Harriet Lee in the SB9 100m breaststroke (5.37pm) and Matt Whorwood in the S6 100m men’s freestyle (5.51pm).
Britain also has medal aspirations in the men’s 4x100m medley (8.45pm), which will bring down the curtain on action in the Aquatics Centre.
