After a tense day of competition in the final pools games of the individual contests, the knock out games have been decided. The first job has been done for many of the athletes who have given themselves the best chance of a medal at this years Paralympic Games. See all the headlines from day 5 below:
The afternoon session started with Brazil in action once again. This time they were up against the overwhelming BC3 pairs favourites, Korea. The challenge didn’t faze the home team as they raced into a 3-0 lead after some erratic play from Korea.
In a pulsating first game of the day Great Britain came up against Thailand in the BC4 pairs bronze medal match. GB took a 1-0 lead after the first end but after playing long in the second Evie Edwards was unable to get her first blue to stick to the jack.
All eyes were on court 3 and 5 at the beginning of the afternoon session. A packed arena with over 5,000 spectators watched on as Dirceu Pinto, Eliseu Dos Santos and Marcelo Dos Santos booked their place in the final and guarantee themselves at least a silver medal in the BC4 pair final.
